1) Dry fit all the superstructure, barbette, and other deck components with the wood deck in place (but not glued on) to make sure the deck will fit properly.
2) Paint any deck hatches, etc., that are molded onto the plastic deck before attaching the wooden deck part(s).
I would also study the various sub-assemblies to determine if it's better to put the deck on before or after attaching those sub-assemblies.
