Best to leave her slightly saggy whilst on the trailer, then pump to firm just before launch, taking the pump with you to top up if temperatures drop.

No worries Shaun, Air temp can have a huge effect, especially with black tubes,
say,if you where to leave her full pressure on the trailer on sunny day, then this could cause over pressure and burst a seam, unless you have pressure relief valves fitted of course.
The cool temp of the sea will balance temp flux whilst afloat during the daylight, you may need to top up though, if you stay afloat when evening temps drop.
