Might consider the safety issue of no floorboards. Does your boat have ribs in the hull? If you have to make a quick exit (which will happen) it sure is nice to have solid footing when running from the back to the front. Twisted ankles or a bleeding cranium can put the kibosh on a nice outing. Your passengers arses will thank you if the need to sit on the floor arises. 1/4 or 5/16 inch plywood with a coat of paint with sand added will keep you from slipping even when fishing interior salmon in October. I agree with the other guys on the weight issue, but I don't consider an extra 30lbs significant when it comes to mine and others personal safety. Thought I'd look at it from a different angle...for what it's worth.
Enjoy your new boat!!
