Welcome.

Is this the Sutton that had been for sale in Baltimore? if so, she is a great boat! very salty indeed.

I can't speak for performance in boats but i do have experience with pneumatics in industrial applications(food and pharmaceutical processes) . As long as you keep feeding them dry air they are very dependable (sounds like you have several backup air sources). Unlike hydraulics they don't make a mess in case of a line failure and the lines can be quickly fabricated in the field without special tools. If the equipment works and is in serviceable shape go with it.

I have often wondered why we don't see more air controls in boats.
