I have quite an old Heron sail number 8498. It's not wood, so I suppose it's GRP. The floor has four wooden panels on it, which are not in good condition. Is it possible to get replacements for these? Do I need to? The class rules say they are compulsory for a wooden boat but apparently not for a GRP boat. Is it possible just to remove the boards and stand directly on the GRP floor? Maybe that's a bad idea - I don't know exactly what purpose the boards serve. Thanks for any help on this.
