Is anyone having bridge floor issues? I suspect water has caused soft spots.

I have never heard of a Santego bridge floor getting soft. The bridge sides are screwed to the floor, so I guess it's possible that the sealant either failed or wasn't sufficient .

It's almost a 30 year old boat, it's done pretty good if it's just showing up now. The construction standards weren't as good back in the 80's - BUT, it sure is a hell of a lot easier to fix soft spots on boats of that era. Drill them and fill them.
