I planed on using the same rails as it had on it.

Wow, the whole floor was gone from stem to stern? How did you know, was it spongy under foot or did you drill some test holes?

I stamped and hammered all over the deck of the one I bought, did not feel soft or sound "dead' anywhere. I'm worried now though, hope I'm not in for the same job

It looked to me like the floor was fibreglass (judging by the recesses molded in for portable gas tanks and center drainage channel). Is it glass over wood, balsa core material between glass skins, or simply wood with gelcoat over the top?

yes

Their were several soft spots on the floor. the floor is glad then 1/4 balsa then glass. my whole deck was saturated. I drilled 14 test holes 7 on each side and they all same up with water.

I guess thats the downside to balsa core, water must have got in around the jockey seat bolt holes and just wicked through the floor.

Did you put any test holes in the hull? I'm assuming that is balsa cored too.
