Slatted Wood Floor Vs Regular Marine Ply Floor

Im still trying to choose between 2 boats. One has a slatted wood floor and the other a regular wood floor. Is there going to be a big difference in the stability?? Say when you stand on it in the water?

I dont want it to be all mushy like you are walking on water.

Thanks in advance,

These are great forums!

+2 to what Fast Fred said.

A SIB will be considerably stiffer when set up with floorboards rather than a slatted floor. For example, the maximum horsepower rating of a Zodiac FC-470 is 40 hp when fitted with a slatted floor, and 60 hp when fitted with floorboards.
