I've not owned an air floor inflatable, but that will be my choice on the next one I buy. Maybe I'll change my mind again after actually living with it for a while!
having only ever owned air floor sibs i would say the air floor is fine for most occassions and is much comfier to sit on than a wood floor, but to me the hard floor s are probably more rigid.
also dont land any bass in your boat as their spines will puncture the floor with tiny tiny little air holes....happend on the bombard aerotec thing.
also check the physical size of the boat when stowed in its bag as my quicksilver 3.4 airdeck fits in the landy td5 just widthways and the engine sits next to it....yam 15hp , i dont think they would fit in a normal car boot to be honest, but would probably fit in an estate or hatch longways
also you will have a prob manhandling a 25hp whereas the 15 is comfortably managable
choose launcing wheels carefully as some work a hell of a lot better than others
hope that helps
