>>>asked to speak with someone within the company with the knowledge regarding my issue.

That may take a while. Boats like this are likely to be Chinese made in batches where anyone can contact the factory and ask for ... say... a 3.8m air floor SIB in white with a blue rubbing strake and a brand name of your choice affixed.

They tend to have the spec the the factory dictates and... whatever they may tell you... the UK seller/dealer will not a lot of say in any changes/specs because they are being made to a generic design and labelled as several different brands.

Not saying it's a bad thing but a very different setup to a "proper" company like Zodiac.... and even they've had their iffy moments in recent years.

Given that SIB air floors have differing shapes and dimensions, you'd either need a hard floor made by the OEM specifically for your model boat, or you'd need to go the scratch build route.

So what's wrong with your air floor that has you wanting to replace it with a hard floor?

Yes i see what you are saying fenlander and i am afraid you are probably right,
and rover i have 2 boats of the same spec (hydro force sunsaile 3.8) both are brand new one is a complete setup (oars, seats, floor, liner, and keel) the other is just the liner (the liner being the boat itself) and keel but no floor and was just wondering if i could put an alu floor in that boat

If you want to get that effectively unuseable boat with no floor useable then I'd make a plywood floor.

no i am sure at the very least i could buy a new air deck to go in to the other boat. to be honest i aint in no rush to do anything i have a perfectly good boat which i use all the time for fishing and it does everything. i only ask about the alu floor just as a thought and do research to see if it is possible

update

Hey guys just an update on the deck issue, i received a reply back from the company this is what they said.
Dear Ian,

Thank you for your email.

As previously advised the Sunsaile 3.8 is sold with an inflatable floor and a foldable aluminium floor.

Unfortunately as yours does not have the aluminium floor, we cannot advise whether you can fit one to it or not.

Please accept our apologies for not being able to assist you further.

If there is anything else we can do to assist you please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind Regards
Gavin

Hmmm...!!!

Yes both of mine are the same spec boat.
But this now is the second time i have send an Email asking for details and both times they have come back with we sell some boats with alu deck and some with air decks,

its darn right annoying that a company can sell this things but yet have no knowledge about what they are selling and have an Email address that states that they are customer service/after care its a total and utter joke

I will not stop banging my had against the company wall till i can get some answers

and the chances are that seen as they do the air deck and the alu deck in the same boat they will be no difference in the make up of the boats i have posted a pic of the boat without the floor in this is the only one i have on my pc (prior to cleaning it after being out fishing

ask these if you can buy one with both floor types.
