That's basically what I do with my floor, as well. It is a full 8' long plywood floor, and is suspended from the frame by rope or straps, the straps holding down the cooler and dry box, keep it from hanging down, if I go upside down. I have holes in the plywood floor for straps to hold in a rocket on each side of me, and I do the same for rockets forward of my dry box, plus behind the cooler I sit on, just strapped down to the drop floor.
I really like this set up, and it is super solid. I think it adds rigidity to my boat, to. I had an old guide tell me once, that when a boat hits a feature, and flexes, the following rebound increases that chance of it flipping. I believe there may be something to that, and a good solid, packed tight boat, seems to do really well for me.
