yes it should be. i wouldnt worry too much about the actual pressure as it changes constantly. it can be rock hard sat in the sun then go soft as soon as you put it in the water (due to cooling effect) just make sure it 'feels' about right once on the water, and let a bit of air out if you think its straining on the seams once back on land in the sun.

You have the boat and engine, buy a pressure gauge. Check overall tube & air keel pressure to be 3.0 psi minimum once sib is floating after some minutes rest for pressure to stabilize. Running combo poorly inflated will stress & unglue transom side supports in the short run specially if using a heavier engine compared to much lighter less HP engines.

Happy Boating
