I've got about 20 days on the river since I put in the new floor. It works great. Handles as well as any new self bailer I've rowed.

I was worried about the floor height since most self bailers the floor comes off the tubes about 1/3 the way up, not off the bottom like a bucket boat. I considered glueing what was left of the old floor up the inside of the tubes. In the end I just left a little sag to allow the new floor to float up and ride about 1/3 up the tubes. It works perfect, tracks and turns better than the original.

It bails quicker than some self-bailers. I've had it filled up to the top, the floor floats up a few inches opening the spaces where the webbing holds it together, allowing the water to drain out quickly.
