Aire Lynx I: New boat leakage?
Hey Buzzards: I recently purchased an Aire Lynx I IK. Brand new, right out of the box. As part of the new boat set-up, I inflated it in my basement. Fully inflated, but NOT over inflated; I followed the owners manual about how to gauge inflation, etc. I applied a coat of 303, I wanted to do so with the boat inflated and before there was any sand in it, etc. So far, so good.
I left the boat inflated in my basement on top of a long table and went on vacation to FL, kids spring break visiting family. Almost exactly one week away. Upon my return, the right tube and floor are still firmly inflated, essentially identical to how I left them. The left tube, however, is nowhere near as firm. It'd still be very bouyant on the river, but maybe 2/3rds--3/4ths of the right tube. No obvious punctures anywhere, no hissing, etc.
I'm sure if I contacted Aire I'd get the "sure, send it to us we'll check it out" response, which is fine. But I suspect the turnaround is...30 days? Ugh, I had river plans well before then. Fwiw, I checked the tightness of each chamber's valve with the provided wrench, no issues there.
Question: Is a 25-35% leakage normal for this boat over the span of a week? If all chambers had the same issue I'd assume it's a quirk, but it's only the left tube. Anyone else have this experience? Thanks,
