Question - regarding pressure relief valves

Hi,
Is it necessary to fit valve to every individual tube or can less be fitted due to the internal baffles and the pressure effect they may have on other tubes/sponsons?

thanks

eze

Probably not 100% necessary but certainly desirable/good practice. Will put strain on the internal baffles if pressure unequal between chambers.
Have seen some new 3 chamber boats with only 2 prvís - eg F-Ribs.
If youíre going to the bother/expense of speccing prvís then one for each chamber in my opinion - our boat has 5 chambers and 5 prvís.
Just be prepared to top up pressure more regularly as they will leach air.
