Advice needed for Quicksilver 320AD

Hi A newcomer here. Just bought my first SIB. Can anyone advise what the correct tube pressures are. The metal plate on the transom has been damaged so can't read it. Also what CE category. I'd like to use it close coastal water so is it safe. Cheers

Should be 3.0 to 3.5 psi, get a gauge if possible for oustanding water performance. Check pressure once sib is on water some minutes latter, re inflate if needed.

Happy Sibbing

Andy, if your AD is the same as mine (2.7) the pressure is as mentioned 3.5psi for the tubes. However, the keel is around 6psi and the airdeck is 11psi. It's not such a big deal for you as you won't be getting on the plane with that engine. However, you may change it in the future

Know what you mean about the 3.5 Merc. I borrowed a 9.8 Tomhatsu at the weekend and it flew. I guess just common sense and prepartaion makes it safe for close coastal stuff. I'm looking for a good reliable 10hp of my own
Thanks for the info
