Really interesting idea TmMorris. Care to elaborate ? Thanks
The way it comes from the factory, it's intended to attach to the hull and the air floor . I say , forget attaching it to the hull, and only secure it to the floor.

I took a full refund from the dealer and bought a Chinese made Honwave for about £400 less which was free of faults.
This is what happened with the first boat to the cone-tube joint on initial inflation out of the box.
I wouldn't modify a new boat either.
These boats aren't cheap.
