Same as pretty much any other alu floored SIB. Should be quite a few PDFs of others about but basically partially inflate tubes, front floor board in, rear board in, insert middle boards in a V (like a roof) and push down on apex. Pop oars under floor each side just inboard of alu floor edges, insert stringers rolling into position so they straddle floor joins. Inflate tubes then keel.

They are a pig to put together, but not a bad sib otherwise.

I had one and found that 2x 10' long 2"x2" 's on the floor, under the boat, longways helped in assembly no end. Its the fitting of the 4x side pieces that was a struggle, I used to have to use a rubber hammer to "help".

thanks guys.
yes you're right camelgas those side stringers are very tight. Problem seems to be they are the same length as the 3 main boards and if you haven't offered the first stringer right up tight against the transom (which it doesn't seem to want to do) then the other end is buggered because the bow starts to angle in!
i'm considering cutting them a little short to make them easier to fit.

ok sussed it!
smeared a film of grease over the stringers and that made it far easier to twist them in place. don't think the boat has been used in some while so everything was feeling tight and reluctant to lock up.

just need an engine now.

Better than cutting them! Washing up liquid is useful for lubricating and sliding in boat stringers.

If the Sib is cold it will be a pig to get the floor in.
My sib is trailered but I dismantle it to wash it out a couple of times a year.
Normally wait till a warmish day and leave it half blown up in the sun for an hour to heat up before I put the floor in.
Floor goes in no hassle ☺
