Inflatable thwart seat

I have just purchased a 60cm grey inflatable thwart seat for my dinghy. It is pretty standard being shaped like a circular tube rounded at each end with a Halkey Roberts adaptor for inflating. No instructions so what pressure do you inflate to? Is it the same as tubes maximum 2.9 -3.2psi or just until comfortable to sit on?
Thanks for any information.

Inflate the dinghy, put the seat in, inflate it til it doesn't move when you sit on it.

Rock hard works best for rowing.
