Zodiac Mk II Wood Floor assembly

I just got a 1978 Zodiac Mk II (Type 2259) with wooden floor. I followed the instructions in the manual that I found on this forum. But the Fixed thrust board is now cocked up in the front at an angle, not flat. Is there a trick to getting the floor in?

A picture would help. You haven't managed to get any of the boards in the wrong way up. Do any boards look like replacements?

Is your thrustboard coming unglued?

Yep. Patch tore. It'll need to be replaced... I would advise doing so with some heavyweight 1670 or 1880 dtex hypalon.

The procedure is a major PITA.

The floor has to be partially unglued.

I think you're supposed to put the bow board in first to help prevent that?

The thrust board never lies flat. It always angles up toward the bow, but not a THAT much.

Sorry it's small but here is our 1972 Mk.1 with the thrust board shown... angled up as said above but not tearing away on the support patches.
