You don't. The only time I've EVER used a raft air pressure gage was to document and verify how far over-topped guides made their boats when I noticed a very hard boat coming back. I think at the time SOTAR was recommending 2, or 2.5 psi, and I was finding boats coming back to the yard at 7+psi. Ridiculous.
As to the Peli box- they're great at protecting things, but I have had them leak in the past. The fastest way to have that is if something ever so tiny gets in the way when you close the lid. Even without that, I've had them leak.
Anyway, I guess I'd choose a Chattooga or Ocoee Watershed bag for my camera- padded out all nice. Watershed bags are the shit- the ONLY truly DRY bag I've ever used. Also, the Mississippi is HUGE- too big, IMO. You wind up taking everything off the boat every time you use it- heavy and things get lost in there. I use multiple Yukons for my long trips. One for sleeping stuff, one for daily use, one for extra that doesn't need to come to my camp every night. Food for thought.
