I've pumped a stardard air floor to 14 psi and still intact, and that was using a tire electric inflator before launching. Air floors tend to loose air pressure while boating on a long day, so probably just at 12 psi once resting on water. If air decks are not topped will experiment excessive water kind of rolling underneath air deck and drag.

Happy Boating

That's a pretty accurate description. But, when the Seago manual says 2psi and the man from Seago says 2psi it's kind of hard to overinflate your pride and joy by 10 psi.

Do you offer long distance recovery and/or extended warranties? :-)

And it's not a normal air floor, it's like an inflatable plank with an inflatable keel under it.

That's what mine is.

If they are not deep V air matts, are standard flat ones, we are talking same language here, inflatable plank with inflatable keel under. One thing is pumping a tube to 10-12 psi, that will probably burst passing 5 psi. An air deck has millions of crissed crossed fibers, imagine an air filled waffer, holds pressures giving extreme rigidity any tube would't dare be inflated to.

Those mentioned high psi can be reached only if air deck is in perfect shape, that's with no blisters or sun punishment detereoration whatsoever.

Seago wants to be in the safe side providing 2.0 psi way to go, but with worst boat/engine performance. Seems they simply sell boats and not extensively test them on watrer for top performance advice. With low tube pressure and constant use expect engine & air deck rock & roll including transom damages in the short run...

BTW, just stating 10-12 psi for air deck, 3.0 psi for tubes and keel, not 10-12 for all. We offer long distance recovery and/or extended warranties, the only issue is that we are very, very far away, sorry :-)

Happy Boating
