Different strokes for different folks!

I never learned from a man who agreed with me.

You can pick up a high volume 12v DC Imtex air pump from Campmor for $29.99 that will inflate and deflate an inflatible boat in a few minutes. You can then use the pump from the boat manufacturer to top off to the correct pressure. I fill up a 10' 6" Achilles inflatible boat in a few minutes with this pump. Hi Volume Electric Pump from Campmor

The Poke boats look nice and the extreme low weight would make them easy to portage. The $2,000 plus price makes it above my budget. How does it handle on a windy lake? The inflatables seem to be easily blown off course. The light weight and large cross sectional area to the wind of the Poke boats look like they might have the same problem.
