Bulging airdeck

Is a bulging air deck a serious problem? I know that it needs pumping up more to solve the problem, but in the meantime would it be catastrophic to use until I get a new pump?

Do you mean that there is a bulge in the airdeck somewhere (like on a bad tyre) or that it bends and undulates while under way? If it's the second, you'll be fine.

Weight distribution is critical in a small engined SIB.
