Some great comments on this thread thank you
Emoney I really appreciate the detail I am wondering as completely agree the cancer analogy plus ballcap- brilliant but 1 of my questions is the fiberglass skin that's over this floor I don't have a plywood floor
the only wood on the floor is that small panel which covers the bildge~ it is 3 feet long by 4 inches wide.

I assume to get to the stringers which I can only guess are obviously are under the fiberglass skin the floor... there are may be a soft stringer ot two- most of the floor seems very solid
but yes, at some point I would like to clean it out and make sure it's all dry
Can this be done in the water? And how do you recommend cutting the fiberglass skin~ seems like the preformentioned router is a great option I saw somebody mentioned
Further, how do you rebuild the floor skin after stringer repair- I assume you have an option then of going fiberglass again or wood flooring
