    I'm finally breaking down and getting a decent hand pump for my Outcast 9-IR boat.

    It looks like the K-200 is quite a bit bigger than the K-100. 10" longer.

    Do I need the K-200 for my size boat or will the K-100 do the trick? I usually have my boat stored partially inflated.

    I have a K100 & a K40. K40 is much faster, but a K100 would eventually fill your 'toon. My personal preference is to carry the 40 when I have room to accommodate it.

    I carry my K-100 on every boat i run. The K-200 gets too flexy for me personally...and usually prefer the 100.

    I have both the K-100 and the K-200. If you are just topping off, the K-100 is fine. It is an easier size to handle and is smaller to stow and carry. If you are having to add a lot of air, then the K-200 be best. My K-200 has an issue where I have to keep stretching the gasket inside for it to work properly, so I use it a lot less anyway. I use an electric/battery pump to do most of the work.

    I thought about mounting it to the boat on the frame.

    Ditto...I use a battery powered pump to do the majority and just top off with the K100.

    I usually strap the blue bag to my frame so i can pull the pump out w/o taking the bag off.

    When I had my Pac 1100 FS (single chamber - 11' x 18" diameter pontoons), I counted one time - it took me around 300 pumps with a K-100 from flat to fill one tube up from flat to inflation pressure (measured with a gauge @ 2.5 PSI). The K-100 is great for topping up your tubes to inflation pressure and for emergency stuff in a pinch. The size & weight is about right for an emergency pump to carry with you on a pontoon boat IMHO if you have to do a repair (which is rare). The K-200 *could* serve as a do-it all pump if you had to but you're better off with a barrel or double action hand pump or electric pump for the majority of your inflation and topping it off with a K pump to inflation pressure.
