decking Posted by: vertpaddler on Nov-04-12 9:09 PM (EST)
I added a small deck on the front of my 13ft Wenonah Sandpiper several years ago to help keep water from splashing over the front. I made it out of a wooden skim board (beach toy) that I picked up at a yard sale. I cut several strips of ply-board and made vees to direct the water off the sides instead of running straight down the deck into the canoe. It was light weight and worked well for a couple of years. It then began to deteriorate and had to be replaced. Go for it.
