I've had alloy floors move a bit in choppy water at speed but they seem to assemble so tight I've not heard a loose clicky sound.

Does it feel tight when you push down the last 2 boards to engage and are the stringers making the sides tight?

Excel

Yes the floor was very tight to push the last boards down and the stringers clicked into place the fuel tank is situated on the board at the transom thinking would that be the problem but it's strapped down strange

It's not the fuel float clicking in the tank? Mine does that when part full.

Not sure it's an old tank doesn't have any gauge I'm thinking maybe deflate and reassemble ?

I'd go with a complete reassemble. Take the floor boards out and check them over . It may just be the panels within the floor boards making the noise. To make the job easier sit the Sib out in the afternoon sun and let it heat up a bit.
This will make the job easier.
Good luck

Did you check the tube pressure ? If not at full pressure, the transom can move against the floor and make a noise as you described.

Got similar sound in choppy water with my new Honwave T35AE. The floor seems to hit against the metal bracket at the foot of the transom.

+1 for the correct presure,once the boat has been in the water for a 5-10 min the the presure will drop and need a top up to correct presure.
