Thats nonsense! I have a Yam 380 SIB I have owned for 3 years longer than the aformentioned RIB, & it has spent ALL its life inflated upside down outside.
Not only has nothing ever gone wrong with it, I have NEVER even had to inflate it!
It goes a bit green sometimes, but it easily cleans off: used it as a (very large) tender for the Isle of Wight festival this year.
