I am concerned about a folly. I have a 2009 i9s that was leaking from starboard tube (little snag). I went to Hobie dealer in FL that doesn’t normally handle inflatables. He had an electric pump, and after inflating the three tubes, went to what I now know is the bilge valve, and inflated the heck out of it, using an electric pump. He then comm3nted that it looked like it was ungluing.

I had never inflated that front valve, didn’t know what it was for. How do I know whether some thing was damaged. Not throwing the dealer under the bus, he didn’t know either. But what should I look for. I came back, looked on forum, and saw the newer ones had a do not inflate sticker. I have owned this i9s since new in 2009

Also, most of glued anchor points for seat have turned loose. I think I can buy pvc glue from West marine, clean surfaces with solvent, then use pvc glue, will re anchor.

Thanks for advice.

Correct. Should not be inflated... does not even have a standard valve to do it.
