That will definitely be more tricky!

Is it not unusual for a 6.2 meter RIB to have floor boards similar to a SIB?

I believe Hightower is referring to assembling a SIB while aboard a 6.2m RIB while asea. Definitely worth making a video of the process.

thanks for the tips people, partially inflating the tubes and using the paddles under the boat for the side stringers is definitely the way forward.
There's no way it's a two minute job though.
I reckon it took about ten minutes to get the boards in, lined up and the stringers on.
That I can cope with.
