1980 F32 salon floor slightly rotted and soft

Post by Martino » Mon May 07, 2018 12:23 pm

I just go this F32 in the fall and I discovered this soft floor board.
Any suggestions where the water is coming form?

Also look for clogged drain holes at the base of the side windows at the back. Water runs to the back and if there is nowhere to go, it runs down the inside corner to the floor.

Is the floor of the cabinet also soft in the same area?

I'll have to check the floor inside the cabinet.
