    Thanks again for all help, have been working on engine so deck on hold.
    Will be building cover over deck to start repairs.
    A few more pic's to better show distortion I hope.
    Red tape shows position of beams under. Yellow line runs from transom to top of engine room bulkhead at cockpit, but due to contrast doesn't show clearly the deck beams not level.
    The spirit level shows deck beams flattened in way of hatches.
    My plan is to cut out hatches, grind off beam to plate welds, cut along transverse plate welds, and check beams with a camber template, and re-bend as necessary.
    I think I will need to cut plates longitudinally to allow beams to be aligned.
    Is this sequence of work ok or is there an easier way.
