Is that piece of floor laminated on both sides (sheathed top and bottom)

Or is it just ply with a dab of paint?

Looks like you now have the opertunity for recessed jerry can store.
Did that chunk of floor pull out with the weight of the fuel cans?
Looks a bit worrying to me, especially if it is double laminated. I thought Pac 22s were bulletproof.

Mark the decks are mahogany faced marine ply which is then screwed down on the four bearers rather than being glassed over like most ribs. I suppose over a period of 20 years water will have an effect but at least they are easy to replace by simply useing the existing piece as a template.

I am hoping Ian is going to rip the whole lot up and fit a cabin. If it works I might follow his example

Shame its half way through the season though, perhaps just replace the 4 x 4' deck piece until the winter. With a bit of luck the console will only need lifting a couple of inches to access the screws underneath it.

Still if you were going to put a deck hatch in this is just the place and look at all that room. I fitted a 600x 600 hatch that just touches the console and sits on the longitudinal on each side. I put the kids in there when they are being naughty.

Or it might just fall off, saving you the bother.
