If the planks are glued to each other there shouldn't be any problem with leakage, be sure to use a proper sealer, Smith's 2 part epoxy sealer is about the best it is. Good thorough sanding ending with 200-220, then varnish with a good varnish, recommend Pettit 1015, fine sanding between coats, min 4.

Sounds like you've got some good wood, good luck on the project.
