Jon, I installed an extra deck beam between the beamlet and the bulkhead; this helped very much in getting a nice shape for the deck.

I used one strap over each deck beam and bulkhead, and then used string to attach the deck to the sheer clamps. I would recommend using string for the deck installation any time; this is a very controllable procedure, especially if you are doing a one-man installation.
