Now is the perfect time to put a few inches of water inside the boat then go underneath and check for leaky rivets. Usually there will be a few and they are easy to replace or rebuck

Existing Deck

I would say you could frame up a 4ft extension with aluminum or wood and use marine grade ply board for the top. Just have it butt up against the existing deck and have the top flush. Put some hatch lids in it for storage and carpet over it all together.

Nice boat. I’m building the same one right now. If the transom needs fixing I would highly recommend replacing it while you have everything apart and foam out. It’s not as hard of a job as it seams. I have my build posted on here as well as a couple other transoms I have replaced. Have fun!
