No sooner do I get the deck on . . . and I have to take it off. I crawled up inside with my pencil and drew lines around all the edges of the exposed underside of the deck.

Then, I took it off, so I could tape the areas that will get glue, and coat the underside with epoxy. Tomorrow, primer, then a couple of coats of paint before they go back on . . . this time permanently . . . with screws AND epoxy.

Marked and removed, the deck pieces need tape and epoxy.

Glue areas taped off, the remaining surface gets a coat of epoxy.
