Hi

0.25 bar for the tubes, 0.35 bar for the airfloor, assuming it's the alumininium section-floor version. Don't forget to allow for temperature change; for example, if you inflate it in cold ambient temperature, the air will expand in the tubes when exposed to warm air, especially in direct sunlight. This is not so much as issue for the floor because it is not usually exposed and is in contact with cold water.

A hand-held pressure gauge is really useful to check on temp-related variance.

Does that not mean the air shrinks and needs topped up once at the operating temperature.

Sorry,just to clarify...If its a cold start to the day, as is probable this week when the o.p wants to launch, there shouldn't be much difference between air in the floor and sea temp. If very warm when inflating or before launching then yes, a lower sea temp could affect the floor pressure. I guess its always best to double check with a gauge when on the water.

If that's a sib will need a minimum of 0.2 Bar (3.0) PSI on tubes to work well, what you can do is inflate to 0.2 Bar before launching, launch sib and after some minutes rest on water for pressure to stabilize top again with a foot or hand pump to 0.2 Bar. Use/buy a pressure gauge, sib will perform much better.

Air floors sibs are usually inflated to 07-08 Bar (10-12 PSI) if too underinflated will perfom badly at speed due to lack of floor rigidity, air floor will rock as a marshmellow experimenting some water ondulation underneath hull. Check tech specs for that model and go from there.

Happy Boating

Hi locozodiac. I agree, full air floors require a much higher pressure to operate properly. The Suzumar 360, like other alu-sectioned floors, only have an inflatable keel, and rely on the aluminium floor for rigidity. Therefore, the keel only requires 0.35 bar. Hope that clarifies.
