I think you would be well to inspect the floors of a sport boat with the sort of floor you are suggesting.
Mine is 4 pieces of 1/2-inch ply. the edges are well rounded and the tender has an extra layer of Hypalon on the perimeter; some sort of protection seems wise. 3/4-inch is over kill.
The 4 parts are connected with removable beams near the outside that pop into wooden L-channels and are held in place by the tubes. I'm certain I could knock one out a replacement in wood, as good as new, in a few hours. I bet you could do it in 2 pieces, but it would be a bear to take apart and put together, which is fine if you are not doing it often.
