Looking good Jason!

A couple of questions for you -

Did you paint the deck or did you do gelcoat? It looks like paint from the pics. I am asking since I am prepping to do the deck on my boat and I am seriously considering gelcoat due to how long it lasted. I still have the original deck on my boat and while not perfect by any means, it is still very workable.

I also have some soft spots to fix. From the pics it looks like you used foam. If so, what type of foam and were you concerned about expansion/contraction issues with the different types of materials (IE balsa vs foam)?

Thanks taking the time. It is always nice to hear how other people approached things and why.
