Hello thump77er77 and Welcome to the Community!

 

The floor boards should be at least 3/4" thick, no thinner, due to the 24" span. You may have to cut the pieces into smaller sections, depending on accessability. Adding bridging, (boards between floor joist) would be an excellent way of adding support and minimizing sag.
