it would help a lot if you said what kind of boat this is on and if you posted a photo of the part.
An engineered laminated beam may be much stronger, but most aren't designed to be used in wet environments, and if it is, it may delaminate more quickly than the plywood did.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
