I believe that takes a long shaft. Can you provide the serie and serial numbers off of the transom?

The cavitation plate should be approximately 25mm / 1 inch below the the middle low point of the transom.

The correct pressure for the boat when operating is 240 millibar / 3.48 psi. Be sure to check the pressure after the boat has been in the water for a few minutes, as the cooler water will alter drop the tube pressure.

Your "crumpling" problem is caused by a lack of tube pressure or an improperly installed floor.

Just a heads up, it is VERY tough to inflate the boat properly with a footpump. I would recommend purchasing a small 12v electric pump.
