best method of storing PVC IK inflated?

Since a separate IK forum is not available yet I am putting this post here... If I want to store a PVC ik inflated, space not being an issue and I hate having to deflate and inflate every time, should I keep it at the pressure I would boat it at or should I take some pressure off? My basement where I keep it is fairly constant temp and very dry.

Thanks for your thoughts.

I keep my PVC boats inflated enough to keep their shape, and I hung my IKs on the wall. Works pretty well that way.
