Reactant alumin floor

Hi guys I've been offered a Honwave T35 AE2 by a friend but the aluminum floor is missing. I have tried googling it, but can't see to find any info. Are these sorts of things available or am I going to have to get one made. TIA

Rarely available used and I guess not viable financially even if they do supply new going by other Honwave parts costs.

So yes I'd plan to make one.

Replacement aluminium floor

Thanks Fenlander. Now to find some drawings / measurements. From someone who has one of these boats.

Quite easy to work out the size but inflating the boat and making a cardboard template. Support it by the tubes so the outer floor material and keel drops out of your way. Assuming you will make it in ply easy to get a spot on fit by making what might look say a few cm over size then trimming down before treating the wood.

You could try some HDPE or similar from Trent Plastics. Waterproof and strong yet easily worked like wood.

There are also four stringers of a triangular section which fit against the tubes and support the floors

Thanks for the info. Don't know the sizes as I don't have the old floor and I'm yet to collect the boat. I suppose I could contact Honwave and ask for manufacturing drawings or alike.

Replacement aluminium floor

Gents I have finally collected my SIB. I noticed on the picture below. An indication to inflate to 0.6 bar. Does this mean it should have an inflatable floor, because I thought it was meant to be aluminium. Or did I just not see that valve when I inflated it.

That's just to inflate the sausage shaped thing after fitting the floor to give a V keel.

The floor panels should be reasonably straightforward . The aluminium stringers could be a challenge. The first pictures Honwave style the second Zodiac . It might be possible to reamer a groove and shape a length of timber but the sections of floor rely on the stringers for rigidity unless you're going to use a single piece of floor material.

That stuck on inflation label under the data plate isn't for any Honwave I've ever seen or known of... certainly not for a T35. It's for a SIB with a flat HP air floor with a LP sausage keel where the rear left valve is for the HP floor and the front valve which will be accessed through the air floor is the LP keel.

Your SIB needs either alloy OE or DIY plywood floor and use the pressures on the data plate.

Thanks gents. I was getting confused. Now I know why. I've had a quote of 650 for floor, stringers and floor guard. But may still look at making one. Thanks again

650 is too much by far to spend on that SIB. That's a fair proportion of the new price of similar SIBs from Seago or Boatworld etc.

How much to make... 100 all in with timber and paint/varnish/sealer etc??
