To avoid the "gap" you need to trim the edges of the deck pieces to within an inch, 1/2 inch of the hull you are attaching to. That will help keep the deck in contact with the deck beam and bulkheads. Dry fit mark the cut. I used tie down straps at the deck beam and bulkheads then packing tape. It did look like a mummy.
