I just bought a fiberglass skeeter knowing it was going to be a project. when inspecting a soft spot in the floor i found that the fiberglass layer on top of the plywood is all cracked up and the wood below it is wet and disintegrating. Can i pull out as much of the old stuff and just lay new plywood on top or is that inner fiberglass shell essential?

The stringers are important. If the rot is just in the deck of the boat and not in the stringers then you can. I would at least resin the underside of the new deck and glass the top. Most skeeters tie their transoms into the three base stringers. I have 95 21foot skeeter with a rot problem if you want another project.

I can't believe i'm about offer but I might take a look at that and repair it
I just did a baystealth last year bur it was easy to get to the floor where the repair was and I did it by screwing down the floor to the stringers i wanted to be able to get under to gas tank and other parts later. It didn't look "perfect but it sure did work good
