There is a large specific foot-pump for this job. It is kept in the petrol store.
The floor and sides are at different pressures. This means the 'air out' lead on the foot pump needs to change position depending on what you are pumping up. There is a gauge available to check the pressure but generally if it is pumped up hard, this will suffice.
At the end of a days racing put all the petrol cans and radios from the rescue boats into the Honwave and use it as a 'wheelbarrow' to bring up it all up to the petrol store!
