Welcome back, Jayrod. :)

Either way you want, ledge or no ledge, is fine.

One thing you might consider is who will...

I would probably go with the last option. And you could use the Schluter profile if you want, but it's not really necessary.

Or use a rapid-set mortar that you can grout in a couple of hours. You'll still need to wait a couple of days before reinstalling the water heater.

I'm a bit confused by the "1x6 .5" subfloor". Never seen or heard of such a thing. All 1x6 I've seen is 3/4" thick. Are you sure yours is 1/2"?

Pictures may help.

Do the cracks seem to follow any particular pattern, like the edges of the plywood, or the joists, or are they just randomly throughout?

They also make similar blades for oscillating tools. They're about twice the price, and not as aggressive, but easier to control.

I'd put a 2x8 or 2x10 in every bay, and secure the subfloor to them. Make sure they're well supported on the ends so that they have full contact with the subfloor.
