      sounds like you got a big project on your hands. Are the floors rotten and can you wax the paint.

        Can you keep the carpet for a template when you start doing your new carpet. I used marine wood and painted resin after they were cut. Keep us posted with pictures.

                      WOW... lots of work done already
                      How do the stringers look because you should repair/replace them while the floor is off. Are you going to remove the foam or replace it with marine grade foam. I dont know what the white thing is.
