I have several floors for it... And most anything else. Do you have the keel tube for it?

Gluing is recommended while the tubes are at pressure. Are the baffles intact? If so you could do the work on the front 3 chambers and then finish up the back two once the transom was in.

And as others said... They are amazing boats.. My oldest are 1990, a few late 90s and the one I have and use is a 2004... Will do most anything you ask of them if you keep them up.

I don't know about PVC, but hypalon has a bit of stretch between empty and inflated. I generally try to glue while at pressure.

The stretch became noticeable to me when trying to put vinyl stickers on; they'd split if applied while deflated, and wrinkleand peel if put on while inflated, then had the tube pressure relieved. Glued attachments would have less noticeable indications, but the effect would still be there.
