How much deck over the cabin do I remove?

I cut off one of the posts that hold the handrail on my Gramp26 since it was already cracked and I was sure let in water. It certainly did! the interior, where sits the plywood, is full of water. So apparently I need to remove a healthy portion of the top layer and replace the ply, then reseat the decking layer. This is all on top of the cabin. I intend to remove all the small posts (formed as part of the exterior) that hold the rails and make it all flat, making handrails that have the holds scooped out and install matching rails inside the cabin roof. I will post pics when I finally get to 10 posts and am cleared to.
Thanks
