Hi adriano,
I’m new to this forum, but I designed some yachts with DS pro. (some of them are on the model-database page).

Maybe this works for you:
1. remove the deck (this can be done by showing the interior edges, selecting the interior edges of the deck, and deleting them)
2. create a new controlface by selecting the control points of the sheer line and the upper edge of the transom (be sure to select the control points from the stem to the transom in the right order).
3. the result might look odd but this is quickly repaired:
4. select the edges of the sheerline and the upper edge of the transom
5. make these edges crease again (knuckle lines)

now you have a very simple deck.

6. now you can add control points to the centerline of the deck (as many as you have control points in the sheerline)
7. connect them to the control points of the sheerline with a new edge
8. use the copy values to other points button to set the control points to the same x coordinates (be sure to select the control point of the sheer line first, otherwise the control point of the sheer line is altered instead of the control point of the centerline of the deck)
9. repeat this for all the sections or “deck beams”
10. then add new control points to all of the transverse edges of the deck
11. connect the new points with a new edge from stem to transom
12. move the control points of the deck to your desired height

if you need more control of the deck you can repeat step 10, 11 and 12 to create more longitudinal edges

I hope this works for you

succes, michiel
