I replaced the floor in an older boat about 7 yrs ago, the guy that helpedme do it, also was doing repairs for a local boat dealer and the dealer had sent him to a fiberglass school. He informed me to use douglas fir plywood,so that when you apply the fiberglass and resin you are starting with a dry piece of wood rather than one that already contains moisture (treated plywood). Also had a reason for not using pine or regular plywood, however, I have slept since then and don't remember the exact reason, itwill nothold up as good as the douglas fir. Fir was more $$$ but would be worth it in the long run. Last time I saw the boat floor was holding up like a champ.

made sense to me.
