Floorboard support

I have a Zodiac MK6 and it has 5 aluminum floorboards.

The stingers support the first 4 floorboards only. The 5th floorboard does not seem to be supported by a stinger. I bought this boat recently, so not sure if it is supposed to be like this.

The floor does not seem to be straight. Is this a design flaw or suppose to be like this. See the photos showing what it looks like.

Please let me know if I am missing something here.

Another two stringers is my guess.

Yeas, it looks as if its missing a stringer. But looking at the scuff marks on the floor, does not seem as if there was one previously.

Does anyone know what the standard Zodiac spec is for these. I do not want to add anything if it was designed to be without it.

i would say you missing stringers all the boats i have been in have stringers crossing all joints except those in the bow sections because the bow needs to be flexible that's why they are made from ply wood and not aluminium. you could try the zodiac mil-pro site for the spec you require

The standard spec for the floor is to not have a stringer in place. This allows for some flex in the floor.
I've had the boat out a couple of times and it works well as is. Minimum flex or movement in this area.
The Zodiac dealers told me some police boats that is the Zodiac MK5 prefer to have a trigger in there. They then order a full length one, cut the excess off and add it in the floor. This straightens out the whole floor. As zodiac went bust \ liquidated now, its not possible to get these stringers any more. So I will keep it as is.

Does anyone know where I can get some extra long floor board stringers for my MK5? I know there has been 3 meter versions.
