BRIS Boat Components

BRIS Raft Setup

Let’s start off with the fact that the instructions are completely inadequate, fortunately, I have set it up and will give you step-by-step instructions of what I had to go through to put this BRIS raft all together. See the video below.

Step 1:

Unpack boxes and check for damages and read the instructions. Note: the instructions are not thorough and you will have to figure some things out on your own…or watch the video below as Mike has to figure several things out himself.

Step 2:

Air everything up to 40% of its capacity, except for the floor.

Step 3:

Install the aluminum floor. This is where it gets more challenging and the instructions don’t guide you along well enough. First, make sure the reinforced seams between the outside tubes and the flooring is separated. If this is new boat, you may find the seams are stuck together. The aluminum floor needs to fit into the reinforced seam.

Starting with the first floor at the front of the boat. Continue connecting all the flooring together until you reach the back of the boat.

The last piece of flooring is more difficult. You need to slide it under the two plastic tabs at the back of the boat.

BRIS Boat Plastic Tabs at the Back

Keep the floor tilted up toward the front of the boat, then take the other floor that you previously installed and lift it up so it basically makes a tepee.

Let the two pieces lock together and then slowly push the to pieces down to finish the floor.

Lastly, Snap the side pieces into place at the edge of the floor to secure the floor.

Step 4:

Next, finish inflating the boat/raft but remember, when you’re floating a river, there are times you may want slightly less air in your tubes and other times you may want the tube aired up more.

Step 5:

Install the aluminum benches. You’ll need to slide them in and position them where you would like them.

Step 6:

Lastly, install the oars, load up your raft and go enjoy the river.

Final Thoughts

I have said this several times, but you will have some trouble following the instructions as you set this raft up for the first time as they are not detailed.

BRIS 12.5' Inflatable Boat/Raft

Another thing to leave you with is for the price point of this boat, the BRIS inflatable raft has thicker material than most other rafts and was the primary reason Mike bought this boat.
