This Diamond Plate Fishing Floor allows easy in and out while negotiating the craft with swim fins.
Splash over is accomodated via side port for fast recovery of hydraulic loading.
Sweet boat! Nice Oars
This frame features Ported Floors. Ported Floors allow reduced water column loading since the forces associated this concept are enough to swamp the boat. Not allowing for the flow through water prevents the boat from recovering from an event. Not allowing for the boats recovery means someone is going for a swim.
Cats that never experience whitewater ...may...? never experience this type of loading. However, if your cat floors don't offer this feature, you should rethink the vendor.

A Note on Floors.
Nobody beats us on full floors....Nobody. However, there is usually no reason for a full floor in a whitewater configuration. Recent events in Central Florida and East Texas suggest the gator population is getting uppity and leaving the underside of a cataraft a vulnerable to ankle nipping...... Better Armor Up.
Scouting Bars (Partial Longitudinal Floor Segments) are a means to partially occupy the space adjacent to a CataRaft longitudinal centerline. With adequate bottom chord width, this allows the RowPerson to project the lower body through the bottom of the cat in shallow slow moving water. However, If your headed to gator country, these are not recommended. Email for details.
