Weight of Zodiac Futura Mk2c Air Floor

My friend is considering buying a SIB. The Futura Mk2C air floor (3.7m) seems a good choice for his needs. But weight, of course, is a factor:

The web site says total weight is 159lb

Futura Mark II C - Zodiac Nautic - Inflatable and Rigid Inflatable Boats

I guess that's when you put everything inside one bag. Does anyone know what's the weight of the largest piece? Is the air floor permanently attached to the tubes and transom?

Owners of Mk2C fastroller (or older 360 fastroller) -- does it break your back loading the uninflated boat to/from the car?

The transom is made of laminated ash or mahogany...a very dense wood. That by itself is probably 40-50 lb. The material is also the heavier weight Strongan 1200 PVC.

The Futura I will be regluing soonish is a MK2C. It's a bear to move around by yourself, but it is possible.

The floor attaches in with 2 straps down each side, and then two removable retaining tabs in the back.

The Cadet FR360 Acti-V is a lot easier to move around by yourself.
