Getting started on the floor

Of my 1966 Tradewind Land yacht. scary stuff. I can't afford much but am going to piece this out. Any suggestions concerning the screws that hang from previous subfloor install, should I cut them with ? Also to get sub floor to the frame (after cleaning rust ect) how does one get the subfloor to the frame? I read here no. 12-24 machine screws doews this sound right? I am just bumping along solomente here

Grind the ones that don't come out with a grinder.

Think that's what you were asking.

I am doing this very job myself and have a post in the floor and frame section titled "termites are everything..."

If you completely remove the floor the shell drops on the frame. You'll need to remove the belly pan to cut the bolts on the outer edge. Then lift the shell to get the new subfloor in. Lay underneath and drill the holes through the wood from the frame holes. Use elevator bolts and nyloc nuts to hold the floor. Lower the shell back down and get the edges bolted. Then put the belly pan back.

I thought this would be a much simpler job myself but that's the simplest way to do it right. Vintage Trailer Supply has the elevator bolts and belly pan rivets.
