Hopefully so.
I know how you feel, I haven't had much use this year.

To get the idea, factory sends shorter side joiners same lenght as the sib box height, If you could find, install same width just longer ones in sibs that has shorter ones, or larger one piece long instead of 4 side joiners, 2 long, 2 short found on larger sibs would be fantastic.

Forget all about hinge floor effect, bending lateral panel floorboard's rails and transom rear rail as in the example specially if going extreme sibbing higher loaded at choppy seas. Just inflate sib to it's factory recommended pressure and you will have an excellent work horse performer than before.

Happy Sibbing

Thanks for the advice. May speak to the manufacture about getting another set.

Lockieboi, check modified attached pic, measure as suggested and send that info to manufacturer to send 2 larger side rails same width as yours but much longer, it's wortht the investment and much better final sib sea ride. If possible to get, let me know to send some more hints when installing.
