If you are doing it right it should only take you about 2-3 minutes to put the floor boards in with the stringers locking them in place. Make sure you slide the oars lengthwise and parallel beneath the fabric floor of the boat and the ground before fitting in the stringers so that you have the edges off the ground. This will give you some finger space to slip the stringers over the sides of the floor boards.
There are lots of you tube videos showing how to assemble inflatable boats with floorboards. It is definitely worth looking at a few to get some good ideas from there. A good electric pump will save you alot of time as well.
Are those the original floorboards? 6mm (less than 1/4") sounds incredibly thin!
