@bookmillone: My girlfriend had just swum at Sunshine rapid (through the hole on the right at the bottom of the rapid) and two other places. I was being a good sport because my time was due.

I contacted Aire's customer service and they were very accommodating. They are sending me a new IK in exchange for the old one so they can examine it to determine if there was anything wrong with it. It sounds like this type of failure is very uncommon and they are interested in finding out the root cause. For my part I am purchasing a pressure gauge so I can be sure to avoid overinflation. I'll be curious to find out how much pressure my foot pump actually generates.

Sweet! We are looking forward to getting that Tomcat back in the shop. Your boat was definitely still under warranty which really make the process go smoothly through our system. FYI on the pressure gauge, we recommend around 2.5 psi for running pressure.

I had this happen years ago on a new Force XL. It was clearly over inflation on my part. I was pumping it up when BAM!. Couldn't believe how loud it was. The zipper split full length and out came the bladder. Once I deflated it I was able to get the zipper to work again and never had another problem. I called Aire and they just said to make sure all of the zipper teeth were meshed together. I'm a little bummed that they didn't offer me a new boat!
