Question flooring...marine ply and liquid nails

finally, vinyl, rotten subfloor pulled, screw/bolt holes sealed, steel primed...now ready for new subfloor...any advice or cautions on sealing marine ply and then using liquid nails instead of making new screw holes in the steel floor?

You're totally trolling for another pennies vs poker chips vs bubble gum thread on floor-hole-plugging!

I support the idea of using adhesive to fasten the new plywood down.

yes...and i'm sure the debate will go on and on, but i chose tape because i don't have that many pennies, i don't play poker, and i always swallow my gum too early.

many thanks for the support of the adhesive solution...i was hoping i wouldn't get laughed off the forum.

Nope, looking for the next 'Best idea ever" since I haven't gotten to mine yet.

Why marine ply and not regular ply if you treated the floor? Are you insulating the floor at all? Liquid nails is awesome stuff will definitely work for you

pacific northwet...perhaps marine is overkill, but my recent experience removing rotten ply flooring and seeing all the different caulkings used by the school district on all the body seams concerns me...not insulating...just thinking a boat on wheels in case the creek rises.

I'm with you i feel theres alot to learn from boat builders. My guess would be the floor was rotten from water leaking through the windows and roof hatches. Definitely seal all that before proceeding. I made the mistake of waiting to seal my windows. My walls and floor took major water in heavy rains. You seem way smarter than me so sure you have it figured out. Cheers
