Can I make a suggestion? If you plan to keep the boat, Spend the extra bucks and go with coosa board... if that is out of the budget than at least fiberglass the plywood and take special care to seal and screw hole you put in it. I redid my boat 10 years ago and now am having to redo the decking again. Wood and water just dont play nice together. I used the best wood I could get my hands on for my boat, sealed it with resin and it still rotted.

when you use resin to seal plywood cut it 50% with acetone for the first coat or 2, this lets it soak in to the upper layer and seal it.
follow up with 2 light coats of plain resin then cloth and final coat.

have done 3-4 that way and never a rot problem with marine plywood, cdx will also work in a pinch but damage to the glass might be a problem.

dap tub n tile caulk actually works good for screw hole sealant, the tube tip makes it easy to put in the hole and it dries waterproof.
