Bulkhead/genoa screws/chainplate fixes

Hello,
I just purchased a 1986 Catalina 27 Tall rig. It surveryed well except for three items, I recieved a good "discount" off the asking price because of these items. I was going to have the Marina do the repairs, but I just found out I''m being furloughed from my Job in March. I guess I''ll have plenty of time to work on it and would like to save the money. I''m very patient and want to good a good/quality job. The three items are"
1: Several genoa track screws are leaking (surveyor says very low moisture on his meter, but they are beginning to leak)

2: Port and Starboard Upper Chainplates are beginning to leak (also very low moisture on his meter)

3: The bulkhead between the head and V-Berth has rot in a section 2 inches high by 18 inches wide (at the floor). He recommended cutting out this section and replacing. How do I bond the new marine plywood to the cutout section.
Thanks for your time
