No doubt DoStep, why do folks use the wrong tool for the job and then complain about it. Buy an $18 coelman air mattres pump that runs off a cig lighter. Blow up your boat while it is beside your car, take your elcheapo pump and top it off. If you are going to blow up a boat not near your car take a 4 to 6"barrel pump of quality construction.
