Metric ply would just be 12mm, slightly undersized. If you have to you can shave a little at the edges with a power plane or on edge on a table saw with a tight throat.

still need dimensions

I still need the actual dimensions of the pieces. How does the floor fit around the inflatable keel? how many pieces was the floor? how did the floor pieces join together?

Don't mess with the boards. I took my 310 to a local shop and had them fit an air floor from a Mercury inflatable. Works good, the only draw back is it reduces the leg room. I also got an electric high pressure air pump for the floor. If you are in the So. Cal area let me know and I will loan you my boards to copy.

airfloor

what is the cost of an airfloor? I haven't found wone for the avon 310 for less than 550.00. how do you mean they "fitted" the airflooor? did they alter a floor, or just find one that would fit?

It cost me $500. I think they had to move a valve in the keel.

Saw that someone made a floor for a rubber dinghy with mattress support slats from IKEA in a recent magazine.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
