It would be wonderful, but I doubt it. Please let us all know if you can find a way!!

forget it
If you buy fabrics from the roll and weld it you can't keep the airpressure of 10 psi.

if you are asking companies in China or GB for side and floorcuttings welded all around with walve you wouldn't get a answer or the question how many items?

i'll forget the idea of building a falco using dropstitch instead of plywood.

the drop stitch of China has PVC coating.
the drop stitch produced in Belgium has CSM (hypalon) or TPU coating - better then chinese one but more expensive

it is a pity that inovations are not supported :-( i'm fed up
