    yes, once the floor is out you need to go a tappin on everything wood to make sure its OK. nothin worse than rippin yopur work back out to fix something else.

    Hi wisker, I had 1974 19' dual console for 13 years. I had to do plenty of floor repairs (soft) and had the transom backed up with 1/8" stainless sheet, (lots of flex). If i remember correctly they were built by the Flotilla Corp in N.J. I to this day have not seen another fleetcraft, they must not have made too many. Mine had a 1979 85HP evinrude that was bulletproof but underpowered, let me know how the project is going or if you have any other questions
