Post Lowe Roughneck - removing waterlogged foam bricks
I popped a few rivets a couple weeks back and then my floor started to buckle and pop more soooooo
I popped a few out to pull some foam.
Then I popped off a few more to take it all out.

Total weight (after some math of weighing one full brick)
~312lbs of waterlogged foam and 1 mouse nest.

I decided not to replace it this year because I would like to redo the thin subfloor on my boat next year.

I was surprised as how much stuff was under there.
An entire yeti bucket full of dirt and mud, 3 live shells(from maybe 4yrs ago) 4 empty shells, some fishing line, pliers, and mouse crap.

Took me all of 44 mins to remove, and 2hrs on and off to rivet the thing back together.

That's another reason I like longitudinal ribs--I periodically park on a hill and run a ton of water from the bow to the stern down each bay between the ribs to flush all that crap out. Another guy on here posted a while back that when he took out his floor, each opening was packed with mud that looked like trowelled concrete
