Given the valves it's could be neoprene? we had DIB's from that area that were neoprene boats. Same valves, similar look. I'm mostly guessing.

I can help you fix it Scotty. My shop or yours. Forget about boot replacement, it would be like replacing the motor in a Hyundai Excel. It looks like the whole side of the boat was loosing air, not just the quarter that the valve would supply. If this is the case, your baffle is no good. This would normally be bad news. However, in your case, if your baffle is blown, we can simply patch over the leaky valve and use the other exclusively.
Your probably thinking how hard is it to fix the baffle too. Well after putting the new engine in the Hyundai you get custom paint and balling 20's. Now you say "Holy crap a boat with only 3 chambers, is that safe?" Sure, just like a new nrs otter. Give me a call if I can help. 4701936
