I have had one for a season now and would not do it again. I have and Avon 3.10. They build the same boat to accept either a wood or an air floor. The only advantage to the air floor is weight. If you are lifting the boat on deck frequently or must stow it uninflated they help. The disadvantages are many though. The floor does not get rock hard so ot is unstable if you need to stand on it. Particularly if you have a heavy outboard in your arms. They are not as stiff and cavitate a bit. They will accept lower horsepower than a wood floor and are harder to keep clean. Unless the weight difference is critical to you I don''t think the trade offs are worth it.
