When I relaced my Hyside floor a few years ago I had needle nose pliers that helped a lot. And, a picture of the floor from before removing the old straps that held it on.

I just did it a few nights ago with my first ever "round" boat. I followed the video exactly and all of the tips worked great. I wasn't as smooth as Sheena but I got through it. I scavenged my "abandoned" climbing bag and put a bunch of biners in the lace. That works great too I think. Time will tell.

I have been putting off re-lacing my floor for several years.
No, too much friction, gotta thread it.

If you don't like re-lacing your floor, but want tie down or thwart loops to make strapping easy, just use water knots to make a small loop. On my 143d, I use about 12 of these in the floor for thwarts, Gear straps, and my pacific river bag.

22"-24" tubular webbing per loop is what I recall needing.

These are also great for clipping water bottles or other gear to the frame with carabiners...of course a standard strap will work but who wants the metal for these.

So brilliant! I am doing that this ASAP.
