Convert able floor seam

Post by Tandem2 » Sat May 07, 2016 1:50 pm

I have been for a paddle this evening and the boat seemed asymmetric it wouldn't track correctly and the starboard tube seemed higher in the water. Checked the pressure and it was okay at 1psi.
Continued for an hour and when I put it back in the car the starboard side was visibly more shaped where the floor fits under the side tubes.
I have pulled it to bits at home now and the extreme right side if the floor seems to have separated from the bottom weld. Is there a flap of material that could have given way or has the weld separated from the top and bottom?
Is it dead or can they be re welded? I assume it would be an RF machine.
Any advice would be great fully appreciated.
Cheers
The temperature here today was 18 c and I went out in the evening. There has been no direct sun on the boat.

Unfortunately, if your floor seam is broken, then it will need to be replaced. You can contact our European distributor for replacement parts.
