On at least two of my Zodiac Acti-V's the transom did look like there was evidence of "spot weld" type fixings and it always puzzled me.
The SIT stuff is mainly for rescue services we bought one as a safety boat 5m 80kg the floor has a boot lace holding it in and an inflatable keel all pump up together not keen on the boat myself as the tubes are not high enough for me as the floor is well up and convex but for rescue spot on with good carrying capacity.spot welding I can see that may be used for set up during manufacture,something that might interest you I started a thread welding HDPE I bought a hot air welder interestingly on you tube they show fixing patches with it on PVC fabric heating and using a roller to flat out.
I am going to buy some cheep fabric and have a play when I have time,done some welding with it and it's spot on would be very easy to make up boxes,consoles bespoke to your needs.
