    Is that teak? 1988 4588

    The back wall of the boat was painted with Awlgrip and there is rot in the corners. I want to replace the pieces but was wondering if it's marine plywood or teak?

    Probably teak veneer over plywood. Common on most boats.
    If you need to replace it sand carefully and re-finish or buy sheets of veneer and glue it on-carefully, it has a tendency to wrinkle if not 100% glued-both surfaces, ask me how I know.
    I believe you can buy thin plywood with teak veneer on it then cover it, but you need to consider the molding.
    If it is too rotted you need to replace it, could be a job!

      It's completely rotted in the corners, I'll have to cut a hole and put a new piece.

        Yes you can cut out the rot, seal the edges and replace the piece, I would seal the replacement edges with a marine or waterproof glue.
        You could use solid wood.

          Yes I was thinking about doing it solid wood for simplicity

            Is the problem in the panel or the edging? If it’s the panel, an alternative to wood is plastic sheet, but not like starboard. This product is used in place of plywood on porch columns and flat trim for building exteriors. It works like wood for the most part and we used it to replace the plywood in the bulkhead in my sons 2550. https://azekexteriors.com/products/sheets

              Hmmm, does AZEK have the same structural integrity of plywood?

            Where is the water coming from?

              I’m thinking that the plywood panels are on the aft salon bulkhead and not structural. The Azak may not be as durable under some circumstances but isn’t going to go soft and can be used to manage water that seeps in better than plywood. Like any material, there are trade offs. I believe those bulkheads have some history with going soft depending on how the boat is stored, cockpit enclosure and all the other variables, other alternatives to plywood may be considered. Like the old, pre sensitivity saying about skinning a cat, there’s more than one way.

                  From rain, the small gutter around let's it fall there. Since it was painted with awlgrip the previous owner did not bother to check the failing paint and roth settled in.

                    When I had leaks running down my channels above the windows inside, I found under the gutter only 2 screw holes out of 3 with a screw in it, the stb side had 1 screw every other hole, holding the FB on, they leaked like a sieve. That area also had no sealant between the FP cap and the sides above the windows.
