Hey Ade,

Hi,
Will be using the boat close to shore really. Not too adventurous!
Fishing with my 10 & 13 year olds and pulling inflatables etc with the Mrs and kids.

The difference for me is the extra faff to put together and extra weight to transport. It wouldn't matter if it were trailered but mine's going to be flatpacked and carried on the car roof.

Another consideration was for our dogs. The poor things would do themselves an injury slipping around on aluminium where they will have grip on the airfloor which is plenty strong enough to handle their claws. Vet bills aren't cheap!

I'm not a fisherman or have diving gear so an air floor was the best choice.
