I bought a used one and found out that the floor slats are only painted plywood and they easily rot and crack. I replaced them with 3/8 inch Starboard which worked well. Recently I discovered that a dutch company, Aqua Dutch, makes a similar size dinghy with an high pressure inflatable floor. This floor fits perfectly in the RU-260 and makes the 260 a very rigid and stable platform. The 260 is so rigid that it wants to plane which with the limited directional stability is real scarry. Aqua Dutch sells these floors for about $220.
