Floor for shed

I am building a large shed, probably 24x18 feet. It will be "back in the woods" on my property. For this reason, pouring a concrete slab is impractical.

I have an MGB that I would store there and possibly do some work on.
My question is, can I build a wooden floor out of PT 2x8's on 12 inch centers with 3/4 inch plywood ?. Would it support the MG? I would support the 2x8 every four feet with a dek block. Does this sound sufficient?

Sounds good. Might want to use 1" ply T/C for that floor. Id also put 2X8 blocks in the joist every 4 '.

What does the T/C specification for the plywood mean? Thanks, blocking between the joists makes sense.

Sorry about that fingers dont hit right keys as they should . Should have been T/G like we use for subfloor. You can get it in 1"
