New to "Ribbing"

Hi Folks,
I took delivery of a 2010 Brig Falcon 450L with a 40hp Suzuki last week and am keen on trying it out at our caravan on Anglesey.
Does anyone know what the pressure in each chamber should be? I've tried googling but I haven't come up with a definitive answer!!
I'm looking at booking on a RYA Power Boat Level 2 course in the near future.
Thanks for any advice.

Jon

Be careful leaving the rib on Anglesey, ref the air pressure and ultra violet rays
It's the continuous Sun and heat you know!

If you get the pressure wrong on the Brigs, they can spontaneous explode

Morning
Thanks for your advice. That's exactly what I did after googling Brig "dealers" when their number came up on the internet.
Got replies off them straight away and am now sorted!
Thanks again,
Jon
