I know it needs to be replaced, but how does one start suc a project?

When I look at the deck itself, it appears to me that the only way to replace it is to "cut the old deck out" or "screw a new floor to the old deck". Then I hear that fiberglassing might need to be done to seal it well.
I guess if I can't sell it right away here, I'll check with my "financial advisor" to see if I will be allowed any more money to see if I can get it on the water.
Any tips, suggestions, or advice would be appreciated.

Well with out a closer pic hard to say. It looks like you are going to have to cut it out. If so, then you will need to clean the stringers and prep them for the new DECK. Once you get the deck wood laid out and cut prep the down side with a acetone soak. Then resine the bottom and stringer tops at the same time put in place resine the screws and screw it down. On the edges where you tie the deck to the rolled edges you will need to tie it with cloth on the bottom side. Then glass the top side and gel coat. That was a short version. Just a guess at a quote from me would be 3000 for floor and transom. Keep in mind rotten floor generally means rot elsewhere.

Thanks much, I know I'd be in trouble with my financial advisor if I did try to put that much more money into it...

Maybe I can find a sponsor to split it with. Ha!!!

Thanks again,
