Looks like theres nothing to worry about unless your a complete numpty and leave it on your trailer over inflated.

If the boat is in the water (and the tubes are partially in) the conduction will prevent overpressure problems (if you want to verify this, pump your tubes up to the correct pressure while on the trailer in the sun, then launch the boat and recheck pressure after 10 or 15 minutes. Many boats will suffer a fairly substantial drop, depending, of course, on ambient air temperature, water temp, and your boats' specific configuration.)

If the boat's on the trailer, and sitting in the sun, you may have overpressure problems regardless of the fabric color (mine's grey and will go from sagging to nearly correct pressure from night temps to noontime in-sun temps.) Unless it's overcast, raining, or really cool, the first order of business after pulling the boat is to relieve the tubes of a bit of pressure. If it's hot, it's a lot of pressure.

FWIW, my red Achilles used to get too warm to sit on comfortably; a bit of water fixes that pretty quickly. Don't remember it happening with the grey fabric (but might simply not remember.)

It's ok with most SIBs but remember most RIB tubes are out of the water.

I saw one that had burst a couple of years ago - one of our few hot days. The Rib was black and the boat was on the water but of course the tube was clear. No pressure relief valves either.

Engarom,

Opinions are like the very common part of your anatomy,everyone's got one,

we've all seen deflated tubes,if it's black oh well it must have been heat expansion.

Listen to the people with actual experience of owning black ribs....simples

I spoke to the owner as well...............

Of couse it may have also burst if the tube had been pink but logic dictates a black tube will absorb more heat but NOT if it's in the water!!!

Our dark blue tubes on the race boat survived the heat of Italy and even South Africa without relief valves, but we had to pump the tubes up after we launched it otherwise they would flop around as they were almost flat!

Yea, You may want to just ship you F470 up to me in Seattle. That sunny SD heat may be too much.
