Rear floor PS190 93

I'm looking to replace my rear floor panel on my boat.
Is it still available through MC? it's pretty hard to find this part specially with the honeycomb stuff...
Any help will be apreciated!

thks.

A few here have replaced the honeycomp crap with plywood with a coat of resin over it.

here's my guess, the bolts that hold the engine cover hinge pulled through. I have seen that on about 6 boats. If larger washers were used it would help. You also have stainless bolts and nuts resting against the alumium and you get a lot of corrosion.

Well that would blow. I never really looked at mine even though I had it up to put the depth finder in earlier this season..

My corners did the same thing. I carefully peeled the corners (carpet)back and filled the honeycomb with marine grade epoxy. the corners are perfect and square. After the corners are filled and shaped, re-drill and re-glue the carpet. Much stronger and you'll never know it was repaired. This repair should last longer and be much cheaper than marine grade ply.
PS. I went through two tubes on each corner making sure to fill all of the edges about 5" in either direction. Pack it in the cells and it becomes extremely strong. Use a putty knife to shave the carpet off of the alloy.

I had the bolt pulling through problem with mine. I put a thin strip of plywood across the bottom where the bolts are secured to spread the load and it fixed things right up.

Hoosier Bob sounds like he has a good solution short of replacing it altogether. If I were going to replace it, I'd go George's route. Plywood. Marine epoxy coat. Carpet. Sure, it might rot, but it's cheap and easy to replace (and strong).

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I have that problem on a trailer (alum fenders with ss bolts/nuts). Just go buy some nylon washers to seperate the 2 & you won't have any real problems.

I think I will go with plywood and resin over it. sounds to be the best solution.
Thanks for all your help.

While we're on the subject, where the rear floor screws to the deck, mine screws were placed in too far and just missed the fiberglass. The were close enough that the outside of the screws grabbed the edge of the fiberglass, so it still holds it in place though(does that make sense??)

Any one else have this problem?
