tricky one really without seeing it properly, in theory yes it should work, but how thick is the black screen? may need beefing up first, then bonding to the deck. if the gap on the outside is large then i would chamfer the screen edge and fill with resin/fibres mix first then gelcoat after. be sure to key any areas where adhesion is most important to stop any cracking.
Good luck!

Gav
