I was wondering if an inflatable rigid floor would use less room? Thoughts?

No because a rigid floor actually has a fiberglass v hull and you cannot roll it up to store it, you can only deflate the tubes. They ride much much better and you can run them up on the beach w/o worry. The others have an inflatable keel and a roll up floor. With the tubes deflated the transom folds down and the boat just rolls up. More care in running up on shore. Now I'm talking about Zodiacs and other good similar inflatables not the cheaper boats.

Could you explain it again, what you wrote is a bit confusing? Are you saying a hard V-hull requires less storage space? I really like the idea of an inflatable rigid floor for fast set-up & more of a compact design, even though it's flat on the bottom I doubt some sand will damage much. I find some of these offer a dolly wheel kit to let one person roll it into the water. that would also be nice if we are using a boat ramp designed for paddle craft.

I read back thru my message makes since but maybe got into more detail than you need. The rigids do not roll up. The roll ups do however have a hinged hard floor on the inside. More care around beaches with coral or rocks.

We have a Sea Eagle 285 pontoon inflatable and it backs in storage without a problem. Haven't used it yet, soon...

Ahh, I was asking about an inflatable rigid floor, not an inflatable boat with a rigid floor, I think that's what started the confusion. Many newer inflatable zodiac style boats and paddle boards are totally inflatable but have a rigid enough floor to stand on without the need for a snap in floor.
