1974 Montauk 17 Wood Location Diagram

Can anyone shed light on the flooring of a 74 Montauk 17?

Is it all-plywood core or just in center areas.

On my Montauk there is some floor lifted,and it seems very thin mostly on the outer edges.

Re: Inner Hull Foam Repair

Does this method [of repairing the soft deck with introduction of a liquid that cures into foam] push out water that is present?
