Why stop at filling the frame with alcohol? I'm sure if I filled a couple of my six chambers I would have enough for a few more days

Temporary solution

I read about these on an ultralight backpacking forum (not that I partake of such foolishness).
I picked up a dozen at walmart the other day. They have a waxy paper inside the lid. I'll have to do some experimentation to see if 90 proof melts it and how well they will reseal.

I've not done this, but the floor of an Aire raft seems like a great spot to store large volumes of liquid in it's own bladder. The pressure from the air bladder would deliver whatever was in the separate bladder until the floor got soft enough to require more pumping.

It would suck to hit a rock and puncture your favorite beverage supply though.
