The ST5656 is a low pressure hull, so shouldn't be inflated to more than 1 psi, or about as firm as a ripe grapefruit. If you leave it out in the sun you need to let some air out or the air inside will expand and it will blow up

The best way to find a leak in an inflatable is to first inflate to normal or even slightly over normal and then mix up some Joy dishwashing soap and water to where the bubbles from the soapy water are tight and not flimsy. With a hand held sprayer start spraying the effected areas with the solution until you see bubbles forming from where the leak is occurring. There are other liquids you can use as well and Windex will work as well as a product called Snoop which can be purchased at hardware stores for finding gas leaks. Once the leak is discovered you can decide how you want to either patch it or have it repaired. Test the entire air valve very well to make sure it is not leaking. Most Dish washing soaps will work I just found thet Joy is the easiest to work with cause its bubbles stand up nice and clear. Check all the seams real well for small leaks like this as they tend to sprout up in the seams over time. Pin holes can be repaired very quickly using either the patch kit you received with your product or by using Air Seal (U051/AS1). It only takes a few minutes for Air Seal to dry completely.

I think the rivet has come out. You have to repair the rivet or put a new rivet which can hold the seam back in ot its original position. Here are the instructions to repair.

If a part that is riveted to the boat needs to be replaced, the rivet needs to be drilled out. Using the center punch, punch the center of the rivet down. This will provide a pilot hole to make the drilling operation easier. Then, using the 13/64" drill bit, drill straight down on the center of the rivet (small silver center). If the outer black disk begins to spin, hold it in place with the needle nose pliers. Once the hole is drilled out, a new rivet may then be attached. Check to make sure the rivet fits snugly in the hole. If it does not, refill the hole and re-drill the hole with a 13/64" drill bit. Next, replace the broken part. If attaching a strap, be sure to use a washer between the rivet and the strap.

You will need these tools. Drill, 13/64" drill bit, needle nose pliers, cherry rivets, center punch, and cherry rivet gun

This is probably the best route to take. Get the Service Manual if you intend to do your own servicing.
