Hi, Thanks for your replies! Just as I thought, no easy job, and a big task ahead of me. I will most likely tear up the sole, cut out the bad, epoxy in the new, and put in a new sole. I will use Paul's suggestion using cardboard as templates when removing rotten areas. When I get the sole up and see how much rotten plywood, I will most likely use Paul's idea on removing as much as I can without doing the complete refit route. I just don't have the time or money for that. This is my first boat and I want to sail vs a complete restoration on the hard.

If any of you have pictures of removing the plywood floor, It would be great to see your projects, and where to be careful when sawing.
