Decking around above ground pool support posts?

Hey guys not sure if I should put this here or in the pool section. I want to build a deck around an above ground pool but dont know how I can get the ends close to the pool edge especially around the pools support post caps. There is a partia; deck pn it now that I have to replace the decking on. The origional builder did a lousy job at blending the ends to the edge of the pool.

Any videos, advice is greatly appreciated!!

A picture of what you have would be helpful if you want advice.

It's easiest to build the deck a tad higher than the pool and let the edges of the decking slightly overhang the pool perimeter. Pics would be nice -

As X said, pics would help but I would be very concerned about gaps between the decking and the pool from and injury and liability perspective.
