Lots of washing up liquid in the rubber channels, start with transom boards rear edge, then put the leading edge of the front board in, join the boards with the H-section alu piece and then push the middle down and work the sides.

I have a really thin flat jimmy bar that I have taped up with insulation tape at the end so it doesn't damage the boards. I use this and strong fingers to work the rubber section. A friend usually helps.

As above.
I usually pump the boat up as I get the boards in to stop them popping out again, although mine is a thundercat so 2 piece floor boards. Get the front and back in first, then put the middle two in pointing up like this _/\_ and then apply pressure to the top to push them into place.

I had my thundercat on the trailer, deflated the tubes so the sides spread & then slotted straight in no fuss!
