How should i go about placing a new deck on my boat. By deck i mean raised deck for storage, fishing platform,fuel and livewell. I have a 91 Intl. Skimmer. It is a 18'6" x 8' fiberglass skiff boat. It was used for shelling on the mississippi river so the only decking was forward on the bow. And it was plywood(rotted out).basically i have a virgin shell to work with. I want place a deck in front and a small one in the rear Should i farm the work out to a pro? I would be up to doing this myself.
