Possibly. If we have a spell of cooler weather, I will put some more air in the tubes. I'd rather have the PRVs and not worry when the sun comes out...(not very often just recently...)
My tubes are dark blue - sun on them makes a big difference.
P.S. My mooring is two anchors on chain, going up to a mooring bouy with a swivel. Mooring chain comes off the top of the bouy, pick-up bouy attached with a rope to the mooring chain. Carabiner to secure the chain to the d-bolt, painter goes loosely through the mooring chain and back on board to the cleat on deck. Hand bouy rope also secured at cleat (loosely draped over tubes).
