Zodiac floor tension

Hi all.

I am replacing the piece of wood on the inside of the transom that the rear most floor board sits under. I don't think the rotten one that is on is the original, so I'm reluctant to use it as a guide. My question is how much pressure or tension should that back board be putting on the keel tube?

I will be able to set this depending on the height that I attach the new wood. It is a bit loose at the moment and as such is creating lots of drag. I was going to put the board under as much pressure as possible so as to push the keel down and stretch the hull fabric. Not sure if this is the right thing to do though.

Cheers

Adam

I would have thought to create right angles with the floorboard and the transom and then set the wood guide. Otherwise put the rear floorboard in place and pump up the pontoons hard and see how it naturally sits relative to the height on the transom. The pontoons should be guiding the board down enough as it is! Pics always help too!
