Square carpeted floorboard cover above fuel tank on my 1999

Customer Question

Square carpeted floorboard cover above fuel tank on my 1999 Glastron 205 GS is warped (bowing up) and seems cracked or broken and indented if you step on one small area just in front of back bench seat. How do I pull up this square section of floor just over the gas tank? Thank you.

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
I believe this model has wood floors but may be fiberglassed as well, what is important is to look for screws that secure a lid down to the floor, if there are no screws, no lid and the floor is solid then the floor must be cut open, removed and replaced which is a larger undertaking. In some cases this means replacing the entire floor. Usually due to water rot to the wood. If the hull is foam filled then you need to check for water saturation, also check for stringer water damage/rot as well as the transom, this is all done before repairing the floor so that you know what your working with.
Thank you!
