Fender pressure

Just got done cleaning all the old fenders on my new-to-me old boat. Tossed a couple that were rock hard. For the survivors, what pressure should they be inflated to?

Firm, but not rock solid.

I actually found directions etc with some I bought a year ago, decided to read them, they had 2-3 lbs listed.

You might try looking up Taylor, a company that makes bumpers, and see if some maintenance/directions are online too.

I would agree with the firm, but not rock solid. So you will not need a lot of PSI, probably less than 10, and the 2-3 that I read is probably correct.
