I have one DS floor in my Sotar fleet. Because these are PVC floors, SOTAR adds a second layer of PVC to make them bombproof. That combo adds about an extra 12 lbs over urethane I beam. The diff over PVC Ibeam would be less. So I would not worry about the weight... It's already to heavy to comfortably manhandle by yourself. They are however much stiffer and harder to roll up!
I didn't think I was going to like the DS and considered selling off that boat...until I started using it, especially in framed up mode (rather than paddle mode). Love it! So easy to walk around on, and performs great on low water mf (1.7) when left soft.
