On a similar note, I created an hose attachment for my K-400 with a leafield adapter on the end. Just screw it on and pump from where ever you are. It makes me wonder why most pumps don't come with interchangeable (or at least order-able) hose adapters.

The thought crossed my mind about making a tube adapter for the K-40. Not sure if I will need it, though. It seems to work well as-is.

My floor, bow and stern valves are not an issue. It's my side tube valves which often are interfered with by my spare oars and other stuff. I like being able tot sit in the boat and pump without having to contort my body.
