Nice work! I'm interested in seeing the three piece aft section. When I did the floorboards on my 96' I used plastic Starboard and went with a two piece aft section, one for the doghouse hinges, and the other section removable for shaft/packing nut, and rudder access. I wouldn't sweat the weight, Starboard stuff weighs a ton compared to honeycomb aluminum, but no one noticed the difference.

Probably a stupid question, but why would you need to replace the aluminum floor?

So, you add like 1200# balast to get a better wake but worried about 50# difference in flooring material?
