Doug, Not one to scare monger. But would this not be brittle and just rip clean out under any force/ lateral movement,

Knowing eagles from previous experience the floor will be pretty soft due to having a foam filled deck,, Any water in there over many years past acts like a sponge,
To be honest if it was me I would want a large base and many screws/ silkaflex also,
Got pic of seats ?
If hollow in middle of base I would put 100mm inspection hatch there and nut bolt with large repair washers through the deck for guaranteed safety , will have to pull out some foam but it's easy enuff

Or screw and glass in a section of plywood on top of deck to base dimensions. Easier route and will work fine

Been watching this and I need to jump in, don't screw them down, they will rip up, there, you need to get below the floor to put plates underneath.
There are a couple of way of doing it depending on how your boats built
