Achilles Air Pressure

Hi I am new to inflatables and have an older 1985 14 foot achilles. It has a wooden floor with an inflatable keel. I keep hearing comments about proper air pressure for inflation, however I can not see what the proper air pressure should be. Can onyone help please?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Achilles Air Pressure

My Achilles uses 2.5 to 2.8psi for the tubes. I have a "high pressure" floor that is 10 psi. I inflate my keel at 2.5 to 2.8psi. I love my electric pump!
