Is there a big difference in using waterbed mattresses versus fat sacs purchased from magazines, catalogs, etc.?

Any recommendations on pumps?

don't risk it with a water bed, the pop easy enough with just air in it. Fat sacs are made out of the same material as white water rafts are, so they can take a BEATING! Also the tsunami pump for the fat sacs works great.

water beds are different than air mattresses.

I suppose if you have one its worth a shot, i could see it being harder to contain.

But if you build a framed out area w/ a cover on it you could put one in there, might be hard to fill and drain since the folded up mattress would trap water. but you could still use a tsunami pump.

Once again find some gravity challenged ladies! Great wake and you can drop'em off anywhere! They also can third which a waterbed and fat sack cannot! Best to get out early so no one sees you! 8p

My limited testing says water beds are pretty rugged.....I like this thread!

I seem to remember my waterbed damaging the floor and support structure of my first home, but it was a trailer anyway. So what I'm getting at is how much wake will 2000 lbs of water generate? And are you required to grow a pornstar mustache to have a waterbed in your MC?:banana:

What about just more fine ladies, logic says you can stack multiple hot chicks together in the space of one less fine lady and have the same weight, then you can board all day with out incurring the rath of those around you.

is alot like riding a moped.... a whole lot of fun to your buddies see you

I have used water bed tubes for years. They work fine but are subject to punctures, although easily patched. I can not image trying to contain a complete mattress in a boat.

I had about 6 waterbed tubes in the bow of my 88 Prostar back in the day. Worked very well, and never had any problems. I would be a bit more cautious if they were out in the open wear they are more succeptible to tears, holes, etc...
