There is over an inch of hull that is available for bonding the deck to on each side. But this is still almost a meter wide so there would be quite a lot of flex in the deck so I have braced it with ribs and glassed these in to provide support.
And SO far the deck I have replaced and the bow locker is ROCK solid. I have used west system fairing compound mixed in with resin to seat the new deck into the hull. £7 spent so far plus the resin. It is top stuff you can mix it up to the consistency you want and flow it into the gap between the ply and the hull.
Shall take some photos tonight unless the red wine calls stronger than the garage.
