Default New flooring for 28 pantera question

1996 Pantera 28.
Ok so I want to take up the old yellowed coin floor and install a new floor. What are the best options? I was thinking:

option 1, install new coin floor
Option 2, install woven vinyl flooring
option 3, if possible and depending on what is under the coin floor, refinish in gel coat and install marine deck foam.
Option 4, leave it alone and just replace the carpet thatís just layed in with a snap down.

Does anyone have any first hand knowledge of whatís under the coin floor? Plywood? Fiberglass? Appreciate any insight I can get. Bonus points for someone who has already done this. Thanks.

There’s nothing you can do when it gets yellow like that.

tried the marine mate thing and either the installer sucked or it just wonít work. You could see the nasty coin floor on the edges since the marine mat didnít cover completely. It was so bad I told him to rip it out. And this was laser measured by a supposed pro.
