Default 92 2100SC Floor Should I Repair or Replace?

Ok so I have a winter project, I have 2 soft spots in the Floor, I am thinking the best thing to do is replace the whole floor. There is probably more rot I haven't found yet......Has anyone ever done this kind of project.

nope...but I slept in a holiday inn express once!!!....


it's not hard really..seen it done a few times and although painstaking isn't the word...use quality plywood...don't use treated...careful when removing the existing floor as you can use it as a pattern for the new stuff....make sure you glass every place well..this is to prevent water intrusion and cause rotting again...

take lotsa pic's.....

SP, Thanks ... "it's not hard really" think I've said that once or twice..lol only to find out that once I get into a project like this I might end up with a lot of fire wood for the winter.... Ok....Glass everything and use quality plywood. got it... Pic are always good(I will share the pic's when I do this project), Learned to take Pics when I retired and went to work rebuilding Detroit Diesels in Va Beach.Sooooo many different configurations for boats and trucks.
Does anyone know if the floor is screwed, bolted, glued, etc to the stringers underneath?

Our Regal had a large section of the cockpit floor that was removable for access to the fuel tank. It also had the receptacle for the cockpit table. Over the years water got to the plywood core and it became spongy. I pulled the panel out, cut off the fiberglass facing on the bottom side and scraped out all the plywood, even the good. I then poured it full with Seacast. It is as hard as concrete and will never rot. I also replaced the entire transom with Seacast. Screw also hold a lot better and don't strip out as easy.
