It was meant to be. That was Santa working overtime!
Now you need the right foot pump. The foot pumps have low pressure to fill the air then you pull a plug and it pumps less air but it can go to higher pressure. You pump until it won’t pump anymore. And the pump needs the right removable end nipple that can be bought at IBC. I have found that when you get the assortment wheel of nipples none fit my 2013 mk2
Perhaps others reading can help you with finding one that will work “used”. I only know what mine looks like and I am sure others can work. Other members have a broader knowledge about these details and surly can chime in.

Defintiely does not look like the completelycorrect floor. There should be one pointy board that goes up in the bow. That actually like a mix of two different floors.

Floor is supposed to be here on 1/8, so I guess we'll find out then.

In the meantime, I went out and tugged on the transom joints and they seem solid. I couldn't even get a fingernail between the rubber and the wood.

My 1983 Avon sport boat had the pointy board glued in the bow. Perhaps his boat has the same?

So, the floor I bought on ebay turned out not to be the correct one for my boat. It's both about 8" too short and too narrow by about the same amount. This puts me back to plan A of building a plywood floor for the boat, but I am going to use the pieces of the floor I bought to develop patterns for the new one.

Arghh!

Can you reuse any interconnecting hardware that is on the wrong size floorboards?

Sure. How thick is the floor boards. Not the edge molding but the floor stock?

Defender.com. Has a lot of parts. It seems the side rails cost $70 but those may not be what you need. Also “H” shaped splices go between the floor sections. If you make the floor one piece for the main floor area you wouldn’t need these. Probably the front 2? Boards will have smaller H molding for thinner plywood.
Can you see with your own eyes a correct boat somewhere?
