I have been given a 2.9 b-square prshore inflatable with plywood floor panels (4) however I was curious about corner cut outs on two of the panels and how they would be situated,on looking at pictures of same boat online it's not clear but their appears to be a slim fillet on both sides which woul be accommodated with the cut outs mentioned.i don't have a manual and would be grateful for any information regards the above .

As well as the 4 floor panels you should have 2 alloy "fillets" or stringers... one goes on each side and locks the floor panels flat. These are essential to the use of your inflatable.

Hi, welcome to Ribnet!

The fillets are usually made of an aluminium extrusion of some description - the main aim is to keep the floor panels rigid & flat.

If you are under 3m, and can't find official spares / replacements I reckon a couple of suitably fixed timber or Alu battens would do the trick. There was a thread In the SIB section from a guy who had built a bespoke floor like that & used the battens to mount stuff on.....

I guess the big Q is - do you plan to fold it up each time? If not (i.e. park it on car roof inflated) then any permanent
