What kind of pump do you use for canoe/kayak buoyancy bags? I have a usable 110V compressor, but I can't find a fitting that will mate to the twist-valve on the bag's fill tube. Do you just yank the end of the valve off so that you can jam the end of the tube onto a conical nozzle?

inflated, and never remove them. There can be problems with that, but in many years of open boating, there've never been *enough* problems to cause me to put them in and take them out before every cartopping venture.

If you have a coleman inflatable mattress with the exterior pump. You will throw out the mattress before you throw out the pump. 4-D cell batteries and blows up your bags pretty quickly.
