Do you deflate a float tube just enough to get it into the car and then pump it up again when you want to use it? I cannot believe you would deflate it entirely all the time, would you?
I am thinking about one of those PortaBotes for when I retire and have all the time in the world. Not now! Certainly not now. But I can see that, even though they may be a little pain to put together, they may be nicer on old bones.
