    ok so i have a rarer boat, a 1995 matlacha magic 16 foot skiff. I want to add a wood deck to the boat to add storage and increase the casting area on the front. any ideas on what to use as the supports? It will run from the exisiting deck (which will have a hatch cut out and installed with latches and hinges (battery and charger storage area). I plan to use 3/8 marine plywood with 4 hatches cut out and a interior box support system built however its the supports I am unsure of and how would I fasten them to the boat?
