"Emotional Rescue, #303, 1968, was getting a soft cockpit floor last year. We removed the inspection plate outer ring and saw that the plies of the plywood sole were seperating. We cleaned out the dirt between the plies for approx. 6 inches around the hole and forced in a polyurethane caulking, clamped it for a week, removed the clamps. We also placed three (3) 1-1/2 inch x 1-1/2 inch x 22 inch long steel angles across the under sole and secured them with cup washers and flat-head SS bolts. Made all the difference in the world.

We have 1966 Alberg # 152 with the same problem. Our deck coring is all
Masonite, to the best of my knowledge, but I suppose the cockpit floor
could be balsa as the other poster suggested. There does not seem to be
any safety issue with the spongy floor, my intended solution is going to
be to leave the boat alone and build a teak grate which will spread
loads more and make the cockpit floor feel more solid.
