slightly soft floor remedies

I am sure there has been lots of chat regarding soft floors in 1970s era sailboats, in the 20-35 foot range

I have an old C & C in super shape
the central wood panel that covers the bilge has a slight soft floor
around it, not bowing, just a bit soft
any magic cures?
one idea was to inject some construction filler/adhesive...
or a big no no?

years ago we used this foaming yellow sealant for a rough opening
in new construction, I remember the stuff has to be dealt with care as it
expands, the name escapes me & it came in a can with a tube

anyhow, any thoughts are appreciated
