No, I didnt, I made do last season and have just inflated again today, and now realise I have a small hole again that needs a repair. I will try and see if I can do it myself, but the floor has had a few repairs over the years with the previous owner, it is not in the best of shape. The rest of the boat is looking really good and my 13 yr old has just done his RYA Power Boat Lv 2 so we are keen to get out on her. Just needs a bit of TLC I think to get her back up again. I wish I knew someone locally who could take a look for me, but I will see what I can do in the coming days.

Also need 2 replacements for the floor straps to go into,, need to course them too now,... lol.. Worth the effort though, a great little boat..

TBH I find floor repairs almost easier than tubes as its easier to get into the house and do on a sheet as this time of year is too cold outside really for SIB glue. I found it no harder to get a patch to seal on the HP floor than LP tubes.

Good prep and following gluing procedure were key to a good result.

So,, I fell at the first hurdle,, Does anyone know what the floor of the Bombard Aerotec 380 is made from? Apparently there are different types of adhesive,, Any tips would be appreciated.

Yep it's PVC so you need some PVC material and PVC two part glue. Also you need a cleaner/degreaser. I use Acetone.

Plus as Fenlander says the right atmosphere - dank, cold, wet in the UK now and useless for this sort of repair unless in a warm, dry room.

Yes and something to be wary of in a house... the warm air can carry levels of moisture too high for the best quality glue joint. You are better off doing it in a room that's been shut away from kitchen/bathroom moisture and people breathing!
