    floor boards 23-24

    Both the Bonanzas and the 19/23/24 line have wood floorboards to protect the underlying aluminum structure. With their usual "Beech is the best" or "Let's build an aluminum tank" design philosophy, one the Beech design specs was something like a 110-pound woman wearing quarter-inch spike high-heel shoes. The floorboards had to keep the heels from damaging the aluminum below. A side benefit to this design is that it adds to the weight rating of the baggage area structure, and keeps unusual baggage area loads (like truck parts from a junkyard!) from damaging the aft aluminum flooring and support structure.

    You can do a lot of damage to the floor structure if you work in the plane while the floorboards are out. Make sure you keep something under you to help spread the load. Otherwise the floor sheetmetal will become dished, and stress risers will develop in corners and around openings. That enables vibration to propagate cracks.

    floor boards 23-24

    Apologies for the research delay on this. While I don't consider it to be completely authoritative, the parts book suggests that airframes M0001 through M0554 had a "cover, baggage compartment floor". Airframes M0554 through M1284, and MA0001 through MA0363, had a "carpet, baggage compartment". Neither of these airframe series show a reference to a "floorboard" in a baggage area. They do have floorboards in the seating area of the cabin, where people will be stepping on the floor. All the later planes have floorboards throughout (including the baggage area). All the MB series (Sports) are supposed to have floorboards throughout the cabin area, with no indication that they have a separate baggage area or baggage area door. All of the floor areas of the main cabin space, in all airframes, are supposed to have the load-spreading, puncture-resistant, floorboards.

    I also have a 1968 B-23 (M-1097) and do not have plywood flooring in the
    baggage compartment. I have owned this aircraft for 22 years.
