Default 2003 checkmate floor

hello, Have a 2003 checkmate BR and just found around the drivers seat pedestal has a soft spot. you can beat the rest of the floor and its 100% solid. has anyone else had one of these model do the same thing. the boat is spotless. I find it odd.

I have a 2000 persuader and my floor was solid but the stringers were rotted.

When I did pull the floor out I could see the reinforcing plywood under the driver seat was beginning to rot. The tee nuts that the seat was bolted into were pretty badly rusted. Not sure if water was traveling down the bolts into the floor or if it was because the foam was wet and moisture was wicking up.

Either way, you are going to want to pull a section of your floor up and try to get the moisture out before it causes more issues.
Good luck and throw up some photos for us!
