Not Tohatsu. Are PVC 0.9 mm fabrics, could be made with Korean or German fabrics which are standard now a days. Has nice 46 diam tubes, 1.80 width, most other brands in same size just 1.70 mt. Can handle well a 25 HP and even a Tohatsu 30.

Taking floor apart, as any other wooden or alum panel floor, just bit of patience at the begining and time to gain fast assembly expertise.

Happy Boating

Hi, I have has the 4.6 metre version for 4 years now and I have to say I think it's excellent. They are made by some Chinese factory I'd never heard of and only found this out when I looked in the instruction book. The build quality on mine is really good (I had a very old Avon beforehand) and looks like it will last many, many years. I carry a 20hp Tohatsu on mine and she will do just over 20kts. I keep mine in a homemade wooden box in the garden and so have to build it every time I take it out, which I can do in 20 mins now with another person. I got a rubber mallet with a hook on the end of the handle (for tent pegs) which makes the job much easier.

A good buy in my opinion.
