After 10 weeks of SIB ownership finally got the chance to spend a whole day on the water. With good weather and a calm sea I was able to do some of the things I bought the boat for. A 2.5 mile jaunt along the coast, some reasonably successful fishing and some practice anchoring the boat was all good. The merc engine is nearly run in and all 6 horses were doing a great job of pushing the boat along at a fair rate of knots (how many I've no idea).
One thing I did notice was at the end of the day was the air floor did seem to be a tad less rigid. Now this could be a consequence of my bravery at the end of the day pushing the boat a bit faster or a drop in pressure due to prolonged use in cold water. Would it be sensible to add slightly more pressure before launching to take account of this?
