I am doing drawings for a plywood floor and I have taken dimensions off of my roll up floor. Does anyone have a solid aluminum floor handy that you can take some overall dimension of?

Don't know about the Zodiac floors, but the aluminum floor of my Achilles was 2 sheets of aluminum with a core of plywood. And edging pieces and rails riveted on of course.

Chiming in on this three months later. I'm also interested in building a hard deck for my FC470. I currently have the roll up floor. Anyone ever get around to successfully making one on this thread and care to share or PM the specs? I'd love to have a hard deck to support my 55hp Johnson Enforcer.

Lincoln Charlie, How is your boat holding up since you started running the 55 hp Enforcer with the roll-up floor?

I'm planning on making a floor this summer. I will post up when that happens.

It holds up fine, as long as it's fully inflated. This is the same way my old Zodiac MilPro friend ran his.

Awesome! I'm going to have to make a new bow thrust board soon as my starboard eyelet has rotted through.

It'll be slow but I'll post images as I go along. Planning to make a foam core mock up first.
