Hola, Tim!!
I have been to Lilburn many times. I have a friend that lives there.
If you can post a photo of your boat and some more information,
you will get so much help from this forum it will be a breeze for you to do it yourself.
Personally, a 12 foot boat is unstable as it is - - - once you start building stuff on it,
it can get rather squirley when you least expect it.
You may want to consider a slightly raised floor vs a raised deck.
Have you read through any of the threads that deal with modifying a 12foot boat ???

and, WELCOME ABOARD !!

What help do you want? Design? Measuring? Material? Support-structure?

There are guys on this site who've done it all. Be specific and help will come.

Do you mean you are looking for someone to physically help you build the deck?

Johnny is correct that adding any deck to such a small boat will make it less stable than before.

Perhaps there is someone here who lives close to you and will volunteer to help you decide the best course. Hope so.

regards, richg99

Pt plywood or marine

Post by DaleH » 16 Sep 2016, 10:42

The chemicals in pressure treated woods will leech out and corrode aluminum - don't use it.

Regular plywood (available in many grades and price ranges) is fine, but fully coat or encapsulate it to prevent water intrusion.

If you use plywood, ( I used some on mine) just be sure to get Exterior grade. Any plywood that has an X in its description is Exterior grade. i.e. ACX BCX ABX etc.

p.s. As Dale has already said..... DO NOT USE TREATED lumber or plywood.
