Replacing airdeck with Woos, anybody tried it?

Guys,
I have a Zodiac fastroller 2, 4.2 m with airdeck. I'd like to replace the deck for something more solid, has anyone done this and can they advise?
Regards
Bighag

Don't do it - woos is terrible stuff, you need moos, much more reliable.

I have a floor for a futura 4.2m, i was going to cut it down and use it for my 3.8m, its for the older type with the inflators at the back of the transom, so if yours is a newer type it would need holes cutting to inflate the outside inflatable keels.

Im open to offers.

Great, a hole cutting thread

I'll start - Woos need a Cobalt tip drill with plenty of Organic, not mineral, cutting fluid.

Its the wooden sections at the front of the floor that needs the holes, the rest of its fibreglass, with aluminium sides and batons....

I dont remember the hole cutting thread either, was it pre 2003? Thought not, must be the alcohol
