Are soft spots on foredeck dangerous?

Thread starter #1
Took the boat out of winter storage. Was on the foredeck and it felt soft on one side of the foredeck. Right of center, about 4-5 inches wide felt squishy. I weigh 187lbs. Should the deck flext at all with a guy with my weight? Does this affect the structural integrity? Should I sail it? Does the inside of the boat have to remain bone dry? I pulled out the cutty cabin and it felt slightly most. Can you do a hammer tap test on a 14.2 like you do on a larger boat?

Thanks,

Michael
