Water damage to cabin sole

We are looking at a PS 37 that has visible water damage to the cabin sole. The access panels over the fuel tank are warped and have to be pried up to look beneath. The edges of the sole around the panels are discolored and there are some soft spots. There is also a wet wood strip directly in front of the head. Damage does not appear to extend under the settees ( but not 100% sure of that). Both hatches (salon and v-berth) leak. This appears to be the water source which caused the damage. Is replacing the cabin sole feasible? Not knowing the extent of the damage (under the settees, etc) should we run away as fast as we can? Can anyone recommend a craftsman/woodworker or yard on the east Florida coast (Stuart,Fl) who could give us an educated opinion on the current condition and cost to repair?
