Ultimate SIB floor.

Hi guys,
I am planning a new ply floor for my sib, and following Sharkbytes advice, am trying to think of all the attachments/features I would like on from the start.

At the moment I am thinking of putting pairs of holes with a rope loop through here and there to help me lift the floor and give me something to fasten things to.

Maybe some battening where the fuel tank will go.

I am debating wether to reinstate the sea rider type braces reinforcing the transom to the floor.

Possibly a cleat on the floor?

I will be looking back through mchappelows post, as I have seen some good ideas in his posts and images.

Can you guys come up with anything?

Cheers,
Geoff

If you're on tiller, a couple of battens to wedge your foot against?

If you donlt have trunks / self bailers, a bailer sized hole / hatch to allow you to get the water out from under the floor?

Thinking of doing the same as you geoff,may make my own floor,yes i have a perfectly good alloy floor with stringers,but ive fallen in love with this sib im doing up,shhhhhhhhh don t tell the wife,lol, if i can make a lighter floor then i may be able with 2 of us handle it were i fish in Kent,rather then have it all the way down portsmouth ,could have the small sib there,i made extra slates for the small sib just from ply sealed it and stained it and varnished it,will keep the alloy floor as a original part of the boat,when to old to use it and sell,lol,good luck with your floor i will be watching to see what tips you get,as some you have had so far are good

Will definately include a hole for a bailer, I have a gusher urchin to fix to my transom.
Any other ideas?
Cheers,
Geoff

Hi Geoff

Battery / fuel tank fittings would be the main ones.

The cleat is a good idea, just so long as the floor can't lift.
