Next stage is a piece of 25mm square wood, two masonry nails and a drill bit just smaller than the nail diameter.

Its a good job most of the rot will be going, but I have seen and repaired much worse. You need an 8x4 sheet of 5bar ali chequerplate for the floor. A mate of mine has just bought some sheets for his recovery truck and paid £50 a sheet.
The piece of wood with two nails spaced the distance apart you want to bob it by ensures the right amount is removed by scribing a line in from the existing joint.

Not sure if me and Rod were much help this morning Phil, but here's a plan B, C, D and E.
I particularly like the exposed front end on the Allegro picture :lol:
Go on, you know you want E.
