If you use plywood, pay particular attention to the EDGES. This is where ply can soak up water and cause rot/d'élimination. I think if it were mine, I'd handle it sort of like real layed teak decks, using a glue/adhesive to stick "slats" of teak down, then once set, use polysulphide in the caulk lines.

My thought was to epoxy seal the underside of the plywood and sand the surface to apply cetol marine light and cetol gloss which is what I am using currently. I would bond all to the seats with 3m4200 so it can be removed by the next owner in 45 years! I am also tryng to figure out how to reinforce the fiberglass seats as they sag when stepped on
> There was no more teak inlay on my hatch so I just refinished the underlay plywood with cetol, looks pretty decent so I will not bother doing anything to it. I did stain the underside with minnwax red mahogany to match interior woodwork and cetol glossed the works, not too shabby overall.
