New floor questions

I have a 1984, 25' sovereign that is in really nice shape for being 24 years old. That in mind there are a couple of rotten spots on the floor that need to be replaced and I'm sure there are a couple of spots under the carpet that need replacing as well. My questions are as follows:

- Is there a thread with a good step by step explanation of floor removable (all or sections) without having to remove any existing cabintry?
- Can I replace any of the insullation by removing the floor or do I have to go from underneath

I have included some photos of the underside which is in pretty decent shape. I know there are a few spots that need replacing. I'm sure I'll have more questions as time goes on but that is all for now. Thanks in advance.

I cannot tell you any specific threads. What I can tell you is I think you are going to be very surprised when you open that thing up. Those white spots and holes that can clearly be seen in your photos are a sign of much water in the belly pan. All that foam seeping out is a sign of someone repairing things in a poor manor. I also do not think you will be able to repair floor without removing the cabinets because the real damage is way back behind them. sorry to pee on your campfire.
