I seem to have sprung a leak....
Thought the RIB was a bit floppy on one side yesterday so I pumped it up "slightly harder than the other side" and today it is "somewhat softer than the other side" so I guess I have a slow leak, it has been OK since I got it.
Thing is, the whole tube on that side is the same - both compartments have gone down by the same amount. I'm not sure where the divider is, but it must be somewhere between the 2 valves I assume....
Are the compartments in a RIB tube supposed to be completely isolated? I wouldn't have thought there was much point in having separate compartments if not ... but wondered if there was some sort of slow "equalisation valve" between the two, seems unlikely though.
But I pumped both up yesterday to "fairly firm" and this morning both were "equally floppy"
seems to be not much chance of having two holes in the thing at the same time, and I haven't hit anything, it has been OK up until yesterday when I noticed it was a bit flobbery in choppy conditions.
AFAIK the Destroyer is supposed to have 5 compartments: 2 on each side and one in the bow and I assume they are supposed to be completely separate - can anybody confirm this please?
at the moment.... gonna go back and pump it up again and see if it is flat again tomorrow.
Do they make "Tyreweld" for RIBs?!
