    Default Beach rollers in the sun

    My daughter sails an optimist with buoyancy bags and they can go from half inflated to close to explosion very quickly in the sun

    In the USA you use beach rollers at events like the Everglades Challenge where the rollers can be in cold water one minute and in the sun a few moments later. They are obviously heavy duty, do people worry about heat expansion?

    not using them in the Optimist, another project

    Inflatable dinghies seem to do OK. Lots of small boats use inflatable buoyancy tubes. History would seem to suggest we've got this. Worry about something else.
