Thanks folks. Good to know
I paddled a Gumotex a lot last year and found no issues with over inflating. Mine was rated at 3psi and I always inflated the sides and base to 3.4-3.6psi to compensate for the pressure drop after being on the water. It beats re-inflating. You're right, it makes a big difference to solo paddling especially. As has been mentioned , you can install PRV's in both side tubes but I didn't see the need. If you want to be lazy you can purchase a 12V pump from Decathlon that will take your boat up to the exact pressure you want before shutting off. Of course, you will need to be close by your car for power or buy a small 12V battery.
