Ayuh,.... Welcome Aboard,..... There's a Problem with yer plan,....

Yer little tinny has a very low Weight Limit,....
With a timber deck, ya raise the center of gravity, as well as add a tremendous amount of Weight,...
She'll be Over-weight by the time ya step into her,....

Ayuh,.... It's Yer boat, 'n ya can do whatever ya want to it,...

I'm only pointin' out that it's a bad idea for various reasons,....

If ya add weight, you can put less stuff in the boat,....
If ya raise the deck, the center of gravity rises also, causin' it to become very tippy,....

There's No reason for PMs either, that's what this thread is for,....
