So I've cut out a piece of 3/4" SkidGuard to fit into my 23"x45" rowers bay. I'm about the cut the suspension slots and the slots for strapping down some rocket boxes.
What's the best way to cut the slots to suspend the floor?
Can I simply run a short cam strap from frame tube down thru a 1"x2" slot cut 2.5" from the edge and back up again? Or is it better to run a long strap down thru the slot and all the way under the floor to the other side?
I did something similar using 1/2" thick HDPE. I drilled pilot holes and then used a Dremel tool with a roto cutting bit to cut slots. I then fed the straps through the slots and across the bottom, around the frame cross bars and then back along the same path to hook into the cam buckles.
My floor goes under two bays. It holds my cooler and my rowing bay. I ran 3 strPs under my floor then attached 1.5 welded rings to the straps. Then its attached to the cross bars with 9 3" strapes. Think there might be pics of the floor in the raft porn s

No one cares that you are a river guide
I am having an aluminum floor built. I have, to this point had my cooler sitting directly on the raft floor. Can you guys see any drawbacks to having the floor one piece soild hanging from the frame and encompassing all bays?
