Onehub, I thought I'd reply here so we don't clog up the DL reports page. 1st off, that boat is only 7 years old, have you checked with the dealership, I would think that is a warrentee issue. I've helped replace a couple boat floors, but we always just used a sawz-all and cut out the old floor, I don't know how to get a floor up other than that. Again I'd check with the dealer, or even call the customer service dept at Alumacraft, if they won't fix it under warrentee, maybe they'll tell you how to do it yourself. I've known a few guys who've used JB weld to plug holes where they were missing rivets, or seal up a leaking seam but I'd do that as a last resort, not the first. Good luck.

This moment is a paradox, it's the oldest you've ever been as well as the youngest you'll ever be.

That should be covered under warranty if you are the original owner.
If not, just drill out the heads of the rivets and pull the floor out and re-rivet or use stainless screws to put back into place.
I'd be a little cautious. If you cant figure out how to pull the floor, your going to be cluelees when you get to riveting the hull. Its not the easiest job if you don't have the right equipment.
Horsager..A sawzall?? Never seen a boat floor held in place that bad. Was it a fiberglass boat??
