Clicking floor boards

Hi all,

I have an Avon 4.6 Supersport with an aluminium floor and I'm getting it set up for diving and fishing.

I've noticed that, at moderate to high speeds (12 mph+), I hear an occasional click coming from the floor near the back of the boat. I presume this is the result of the tabs on the floor panels flexing as the boat moves through the water, but I just want to make sure it's normal and not something I need to check out (transom trouble etc.)

I've had the boards out of the boat a few times for cleaning and everything seems fine both with the panels and the transom. However, it would be good to know whether I need to give it a closer inspection.
