Suzumar DS-265m (Am I missing Bits?)

Hi Guys, i have a Suzumar DS - 265 approx 7 years old, it has an inflatable rib that runs up the middle of the inside. Even when this is inflated the floor either side of the rib is baggy, my question is should there be any formers or slats or is this baggy floor right? I have looked on the ney and cant seem to find the answer. All help is greatly appreciated.

Have you got a wooden floor at all?

No it's just got the inflatable rib, there is no pockets or obvious way of fixing anything like that in place, do you think there should me something in the bottom?

You usually have one of the following:

alloy deck,
wood deck,
inflatable deck (air deck),

If you haven't got any of them then the inflatable keel has nothing to press against to form the hull.

It all makes sense now, if i was to cut some wood the right width it would be trapped under the sides of the boat forcing the inflatable keel down thus tensioning the baggy bits. Its like a light has been turned on.....! Thanks Chewy your a ledgend. Sort of like the pic below

Glad I can help.

You can see on this one how it should be, you can just make out the alloy guide under the tube that stops the boards folding.

Do you think I would need to try and find the proper slat system, or would home made slats do the job. I seem to be having trouble sourcing stuff as aparently Suzuki don't make Suzumar any more

For the size of the boat you'd be best off with one piece of wood, least it won't fold then.

Hello again, if I make it out of one piece won't it flatten the bottom? as the front of the boat curves upwards, if i make it out of two pieces would it be weak? the picture with the wood is how I was thinking of splitting the two pieces(the wood in the pic is only a hardboard template). Do you think this will be ok? sorry to keep on with the questions but there is no-one else i can ask.

Cheers

jim
