Is there a video on how to set up the sail kit to an inflatable? I am new to sailing and don't fully understand how the mast sits in the mount. It looks to loose to me and seems to wabble. I also don't know how taught the stays should be. I am afraid if I pull too much something might rip. Thanks for any assistance.

Thanks for the pdf link, but I am looking to see if there are any videos on the sail installation for inflatables. I don't fully understand how the mast sits in the mount and how taught the stays should be. The mount isn't too deep and it is much wider then the actual mast. The mast looks too loose in the mount and feels like it will come out with a strong wind. The instructions aren't clear, especially for a novice like myself. I also don't know the correct way to tension stopper knots. Thanks for all your assistance and advice.

We don't have a video on this.

Floor and side tube at full pressure. Line tension should be snug, but not to the point of distorting the hull. Its ok if the sail leans a little while sailing. I don't recall the line adjustment system at the moment. I'll ask the engineers to comment Monday.
