3.3 BOATING REGULATIONS Before kayaking, check with local, regional and national authorities to identify restricted areas. These authorities are there to assist you and enforce boating regulations.

9


3. SAFETY INFORMATION Information on inland and coastal regulations along with accessibility can be obtained from your local Coast Guard unit, Environment Agency, Park Authority or similar national organisation. 3.4 BOAT SAFETY LABELS Your kayak is affixed with various safety labels at point of manufacture. These labels appear at specific locations on the kayak where safety is of particular concern. Safety labels should not be removed. 3.5 REGISTRATION Depending on country of use, your kayak may need registration before use on certain waterways. Check with local environmental, waterway or coastguard authorities for details of local, regional and national requirements. Some areas may require that you register and display a registration number on the front of your kayak. The U.S. Coast Guard requires that all power boats operated on the navigable waters of the United States must be registered in the state of main use; also, many States require registration in that state whenever boating on waters within their state boundary. Always contact your state boating authorities (and neighbouring states) for registration information on boats. Once you have been issued a number, it is best to affix it on the boat by printing it on the material with a permanent ink marker. 3.6 EDUCATION This manual is not intended to provide complete training on all aspects of boat operation.

Main valve

Dust cap

Smaller opening for inflation

Larger opening for deflation

There is one valve per inflatable chamber and the valve itself is split into two parts. By unscrewing the dust cap you will reveal a small opening which is used for inflation. By unscrewing the larger section of the valve you will reveal a larger opening used for deflation (see above illustration).

Dust cap

Valve

Push-fit screw nozzle

Inflation is achieved by pumping air into the smaller opening. Dust cap This opening contains a no-return seal so air can only be added via this opening. Because the small opening has a no-return seal, the kayak cannot be deflated by this opening. To deflate the kayak, unscrew the larger section to open the larger opening through which air can escape rapidly to quickly deflate the kayak. Push-fit screw nozzle

Do not exceed the pressure of 1.5 psi for both the floor and side chambers. 9 When the kayak is fully inflated, unscrew and remove the push-fit screw valve.

7. ON THE WATER 7.1 RECOMMENDED CLOTHING AND EQUIPMENT While on the water you will need the following equipment: Personal Floatation Device (Buoyancy Aid) - PFDs should be approved to the correct ISO/USCG standard or recognised standard of your country and fit correctly with sufficient floatation for your size and weight. Paddle - This kayak is intended for use with a double bladed kayak paddle and we recommend using a paddle between 200cm and 220cm in length. You should also ensure you dress appropriately for the weather conditions. Remember that wind can cool you down quickly, even on sunny days. Additional clothing may be necessary. Ensure that all equipment and baggage is stowed securely and does not impede your safe exiting of the kayak. 7.2 WHERE TO USE YOUR INFINITY KAYAK Infinity inflatable kayaks are perfect for use at sheltered beaches, in calm coastal waters, on inland lakes and on still or slow moving rivers. You should avoid shallow rocky rivers and coastal rocks, as these are likely to damage your kayak. Also avoid paddling where there are many larger vessels present. Indicates an imminently hazardous

7. ON THE WATER 7.3 GUIDELINES FOR USAGE When planning a trip ensure you advise someone of your travel plans. It is your responsibility to be aware of and observe any rules and regulations applying to the area you are paddling. Be courteous to other water user. Most areas have local laws and regulations about the use and equipment of small boats. You may wish to contact the relevant authority who will be able to provide you with the needed information. Some areas may require that you register and display a registration number on the front of your kayak. After you have inflated your kayak and before you put it in the water, inspect your equipment for obvious signs of wear or failure. When planning a trip ensure you advise someone of your travel plans. It is your responsibility to be aware of and observe any rules and regulations applying to the area you are paddling. Be courteous to other water users. 7.4 STAYING SAFE All watersports are potentially dangerous however and in using your Infinity kayak you accept all associated risks and responsibilities. Be careful you do not overestimate your strength, endurance or skill. If in doubt, ask a lifeguard or other trained expert and above all use common sense and good judgement. a) Wind - Inflatable kayaks are very light and as such very vulnerable to the effect of wind. Especially when paddling in coastal waters, be extremely careful of offshore winds. b) Currents - Rivers and coastal waters often have hidden 28


7. ON THE WATER currents which can prove extremely hazardous to swimmers and kayaks. Make sure you are aware of any river or tidal currents and if in doubt consult an expert. c) Sharp/hard objects - Avoid sharp rocks and hard surfaces. They are dangerous to you and can damage your kayak. d) Cold - The combination of water and wind can cool you down extremely quickly even on sunny days, so a windproof garment is often a good idea. Be sure to dress appropriately and carry spare clothing where necessary. e) Waves - Ocean waves can be great fun on sandy surfing beaches, however on rocky shorelines and some beaches they can be extremely hazardous. f) Sunburn - Whilst on the water, the harmful effects of sunshine are multiplied due to reflection from the water’s surface. If paddling in bright conditions, cover up bare skin where possible and wear sunscreen. g) Clubs - There are many paddling clubs and professional organisations all over the world. They can be a great source of information on places to paddle, people to paddle with and most importantly, technique and safety practices.

9. REPAIR INSTRUCTIONS 9.1 CHECKING FOR LEAKS Infinity kayaks feature inflatable chambers encased in a tough Nylon fabric outer shell for superior durability. However, if you suspect a chamber has suffered damage and is leaking, you should check for punctures. NOTICE - Before removing inflatable chambers to check for punctures, ensure all valves are fully tightened. Sometimes loose valves can leak. Reinflate and check again.

position, the backrests of the adult seats need to be clipped the appropriate D-ring attachment points and adjusted 11. into TROUBLESHOOTING to the desired position. If you experience any difficulties inflating or using your kayak, see below for solutions:

Troubleshooting

Problem Slow leak Still leaks slowly Valves don’t align

Doesn’t inflate

Solution Check valve gaskets and make sure the fabric shell is not interfering with the seal. The valve must be closed tightly. Check for pin hole punctures - see Owners Manual for repair instructions. If the air chambers are not aligned with the valves in the centre of the holes: a) Unzip the cover. b) Partially inflate the chamber. c) Realign the air chambers to the correct position within the fabric shell. d) Close zip cover and inflate chambers with the footpump provided. e) If the valve becomes impinged by the fabric, it can put pressure on the valve. To prevent this, ensure the valve stays clear of the fabric hole during inflation. Ensure the air chambers are aligned.

Stuck zipper

If a zipper is stuck, do not force it open. Instead, wash with a toothbrush and soap and water. Rinse completely once opened. Never unzip the cover when the kayak is inflated.

Drying kayak

Use the drain plug in rear of hull to drain water from the kayak and wipe down with high-absorbing sponge. Store the kayak inflated until dry. Do not place in direct sunlight to dry. Do not store while wet.
