You can cut into the deck beam and see how it goes. If you think you need a little bit of strength there you can laminate a few pieces of scrpa okume together, maybe 8-10 inches in length, and epoxy them just in front on the deck beam. I have built a couple of Chesepeakes and this happened on the first one I built and this solution worked just fine. The deck is quite strong at that point.
