Agree on doing it early. The deck is in pretty good shape right now but going to add benches for dive gear. Figured now might be a good time before adding benches.

I replaced the sidewalls up to the gunnels with aluminum when I did the deck. Just plan it out, and cut the sheets with a skilsaw that has a carbide blade. More teeth the better.
