Hi max,

The floor on mine clicks if it's a bit choppy. Tends to do it more/creak if I haven't got the keel inflated fully, that valve needed tightening a bit on mine so the noise got worse as the the day would go on.

I think It's just the slats moving a bit as the floor flexes.

Matt

Excellent, finally hoping to use mine for the first time since I fitted my docking arms this weekend.

The boat has been more of a garage ornament for the last month or so with this crappy weather!

Hi yes the floor used to creak quite loudly on mine, when pivoting on top of a wave,better when keel and tubes pumped up to correct pressure, was fine on calmer days, the cure was to buy a rib.
