Hello! First post here, as I've just acquired a new to me (old, 2011) Achilles LSI-260 dinghy.
I spent the afternoon cleaning with some inflatable/RIB cleaner, and noticed that there seems to be some yellow/orange around the seams. Is this normal for a 10 year old inflatable? Anything I should be worried about here? I'm assuming this is the glue?
Before I bought the boat, I spray soap extensively around the boat and there are no leaks. The boat has been inflated for the past 3 days and doesn't seem to have lost any pressure.
Other than what the manual recommends, any other maintenance I should do before I take her out? I'm planning to replace the o rings + gaskets on the valves, pick up a proper pressure gauge(hopefully I can find a suitable replacement for the official Achilles one as it's $100+), and repaint the seat.
After maintenance is done, I'll be on the hunt for a 6HP outboard
