Another point to consider is that dark tubes will abrade and fade in sunlight faster than light tubes. But both will do so to a degree. An all-over cover for when you are not using the boat is an essential IMHO to reduce UV damage to the tubes. It also keeps the leaves and sh*t out!

I had a boat with yellow tubes and no pressure relief valves and was never really worried about exploding tubes. Did let a bit of puff out when it was really hot. Current boat has blue tubes and again I don't feel that its a huge issue.

Your tubes shouldn't be too full of air in any event. (normal pressure is 2-3 psi) as a bit of "give" is desireable to absorb wave impact!

IMHO

IMHO = In my humble opinion

Thought it was a relatively well known bulletin board term like ROFLMAO?!

Pete

There are loads of these acronyms, some more common than others -- have a look here for some more.

Top tip, if you ever want to find out about anything the first step should be to search for it on www.google.com!
