There are as many answers to that question as there are members here.
The original was just regular plywood and lots of people use MARINE GRADE PLYWOOD (MGP). It is very expensive in comparison to regular.
So when you lifted those two panels how were they laid. Did they go into the c channel or were they just laid against the edge of the wall.
The first most forward sheet that is curved actually has the c channel sitting on top of the plywood floor. That is same for both the front end cap and the rear endcap.
The next section of floor and this is the same for all the floor sections along the straight sides of the trailer fit into a c channel. Actually the channel along the side is a double channel, one horizontal for the floor to fit into and one vertical for the skins and shell to rivet to.
This is what that double channel looks like.
