Dry fitting deck. If you want to install a new bow tow eye, do it now, before you install the deck, as I did. It is nearly impossible to get at it once the deck is installed. Deck installation is where you’ll learn whether or not you did a good job of staying true to your original transom thickness measurements. If you did, the holes in the deck shoebox edge will line up with the holes in the boat (except you’ll need to re-drill them because you’ve now covered the holes on the inside of the hull with the reinforcement strip installed earlier). If you didn’t…well, you’ll be grinding down the transom to make it fit.
