The 2 x 8 s are at 16" and are supported directly through the middle of this simple 180 Ftr.
I can block it from underside but I am not going to rip apart their house to do so.
The way I would do this is as I explained prev--- screw a grab handle onto a 8 x 14 ply and glue and screw. I know it won't move any more. Or better yet cut out a 3x141/2 and attach a 2x6 onto the beams verticaly and also to the ply. I 'm not sure if your follwing me here.
There has to be a better way.

Thought: Rip at the seam of the 3/4 ply 7/8ths of the way through and use a wood bond of some sort that is stronger than the wood itself. This would leave a 1/8th cut line to fill.
And then the application of the backer would add extra support.
Them areas can be marked for extra screws.
