I've done searches on the net and this forum looking for information....I have read that the deck is (typical Donzi) tabbed to stringers and a 16 IO is supposedly easy with engine compartment access....does anyone know if the outboard well is also tabbed (and if so, how was it accessed...little hatches are just that little)? Anyone who has R&R'd a deck, how did you rejoin the hull deck joint at gunwale? And, if anyone has any other pertinent info, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!.......JB

usually there are a tabs around the floor locker and the ski locker. both areas where you can get to when the deck is on the hull.

It is late 60's hull (1968+ but does not have molded-in HIN on transom) and motor is an early 70's merc 1150.

Thanks to all for information!!

once you find and cut the tabs about 6 people can pop the deck and walk it off
