Zodiac Ribster

Good morning folks, I'm not sure this is the right section but here goes anyway. This is my 1st post after using the ribnet forums as a valuable source of info.
I am after info on a new purchase, a Zodiac Ribster 400 built in 2000. Is it hypalon or pvc? (I'll probably figure that out this w/e ) and most importantly what psi/ bar the tubes need to be at?
Any info would be greatly appreciated, cheers, Gilles

They were PVC.

3.5 psi approximately is the recommended operating pressure.

That's a pretty old PVC boat...be sure to inspect all of the glued surfaces. They're probably all pretty weak by now.

Many thanks for your response, it certainly does need some attention but I'm confident she'll be a great boat when fixed up.
Cheers,
Gilles
