What material is the yellow? Is it coming from where the black meets the yellow? Slow leak? Fast leak?

I don't know your particular boat where is that valve located?

Slow very slow, the yellow good question. It's of to the Glue Doctor for a check, I found one on gum tree of all places. Several professional repairers have recommended against latex/acrylic I'm not knocking it, just want it done right and also the boat gets a going over while there, I treat it like an aircraft. If you love machinery, machinery will love you back a wise man told me.

This might help either, Gemini made the for surf rescue they fell out of favour, I spoke to Senoir Clubby who is a shipwright by trade and part of the IRB racing scene. He is a well known and respected, " they are are softer ride, turn better,maybe too good but require more power" he didn't have a reason for them being discontinued.
I'll take better photos next time, maybe during surgery at the Doctors.

Hi,

I have a Gemini with highjackers (Dive 470), and yes, they are layered and reinforced unlike any other RIB or SIB I have seen. Definitely do not do the latex thing. It will not work and just create a hug mess inside the tubes.
Why not contact the manufacturer directly and get their advice?
