I put the deck together and then attached it to the hull. I used plastic card to hold the pieces together. Don't shimmy your deck like I did though. I should have put the plastic pieces on the inside lip of the hull and laid the deck down on top.
The bow section of the hull, where the deck fits into, was really warped. I don't know if it had anything to do with cutting out the anchor housing and moving it, but man, what a pain in the butt getting it glued in place.
Lots of clamps and tape to hold it together.
