I admit the floor can be a little heavy if the boat is assembled and disassembled each trip like achille2124 says, this is no problem for me as i have it inflated on trailer and only disassemble once a season.

I dont think i could trust a air floor if fishing with it, one stray hook or dropped fillet knife and its dead.

The ride is so much better, stiffer and takes more chop.

If you take your Dog the ali floor is defo way to go.

Hope this helps,

Matt.

It takes more than a dropped knife or hook to kill it. We rarely see defective HP floor, they are very resistant.

However, I still prefer HD floor for the performance and stiffness on the boat.

Thanks to all for the good advice

Hard floor it is. A bit more work as I will disassemble 5-6 time a year, but overall I think it is more than just an option for me.

Getting ready to buy. Miami Boat show was a bit of a disapointment as non of the boats I am interested in were there. But talked to some informative people.
