Searider SR4 Soft Floor

I've got lovely old mid 80's SR4 with the GRP/Plywood floor (It has the metal tube transom supports). Problem is the floor is now very soft, especially when the boat has been in the water for a few days. The problem area is between the rear of the console and the transom. I'm sure the ply is rotten. How do I go about getting it fixed and how much should I pay? Also any recommendations on who could do it? I live in the Midlands, near Stratford (almost as far from the sea as you can get!). I don't want to block the flooding hull.

Easy job. When replacing the floor glass the under side and also glass in an underfloor trunk to take your cables. On a sr4 probably 10 hrs hard graft

Thanks - this looks exactly like my problem. Any idea how much this should cost if I ask a professional to do it. I'm very time poor at the moment!

Depends how much you do yourself or if you find anything else under neath
To remove the floor and replace is going to cost you about 500/600
