I tried one time, ground out the old ply with a router but care is  
needed as the glass edges are beveled. I replaced the wood with solid  
cedar strips which was quite easy; the difficult part was replacing  
the gel at the edges. The repair lasted for only a few years and I had  
it ground out again and replaced in all glass by a professional. This  
was only the lazarette hatch, my others are so far O.K. I use cetrol  
on the wood and re do it every couple of years with a very light  
sanding and at least three coats of the cetol.
