Fill to full pressure, us spray bottle with water and a little dish soap added, spray boat entirely, find leaks, repair as necessary. I don't know, did you buy a boat with air leaks? anyone buying a used boat should do the soapy water test before laying out the cash to see if there are any seam or valve boot leaks.
As far as boats not leaking. I have a lot of boats and all of them stay full of air for weeks if they are just sitting inflated in the garage.
