Figured as much. I don't know specific YAM pressures, but my QS tender is the same size and general design. So, for general guidelines the tubes take 3.5psi, the keel 6psi and the airdeck 11psi.

Don't blame me if they go POP!

Tubes 3-3.5 psi, normal keel pressure 3.0, 6.0 is wanting bumpy keel on choppy seas, 10-12 psi for air floor best rigidity.

Happy Sibbing

Reading from my Yam manual it says that tube and keel pressure should be 3.4 psi and the inflatable floor should be 11.3 psi. There's a tag on my keel inlet that tells me the pressure, I don't have to worry about an air floor. Mine's wood!
