I've just got a Zodiac ... came as a bonus with a boat I'm just buying along with a new Yamaha 4 ... wasn't even on the inventory! I've taken it home and put it in the garage for the winter as I won't be anchoring and thus needing it till the Spring.
Opened the valve cover and discovered a little valve which pops down to deflate and can the be pulled up again to hold the air in - green it is. Tried to inflate it with my electric pump but couldn't get it to work, both with the little valve in and out. Do Zodiacs need something special or different to other inflatables? Pump works fine with my old Seago.
