The panel supports on my boat are wood strips that are bolted to the plywood subfloor. The panel supports hold the access panel. They just need a little more reinforcement.
If you have this issue, use a screw gun and some wood screws. I used Number 10, 1-1/2 inch screws. Screw up from underneath. See photos. It's a little bit difficult holding the screw gun and screw upside down, but it's achievable. You may not be able to reach around the entire panel opening, but any screws you can attach will greatly improve the floor.
I tackled this job today on sections of my floor panel, that I felt were flexing too much. Now the floor panels feel rock solid underfoot. Or just like new. Actually, better than new. No movement at all, which is what I prefer.

I did a similar job on some of the access panels on our 3697. I also added a cross piece screwed in from the top in the middle. Easily removable for access if needed.
