2002 Mk2 Zodiac air pressure

Thanks to Defender and finally have a workable air pressure gauge at a cheap price. Now, can someone let me know what pressure I should keep my tubes at. Presently just short of 3.0 lbs. Thanks for your help.

Also, I have been filling the speed tubes and keel until hard pressure on the pump, is that okay.

The tubes should be around 240-280 millibars (around 3.4 psi). The keel and speed tubes a little less at around 220-240 millibars. Go easy on the keel and tubes - or you'll damage them.
