I would have no problem using ripped down pressure treated 2x4's for this. You wont need full dimension 2x4 as there won't be that much weight on them. After you cut them to fit, paint them with polyester resin or epoxy to seal them if you are really worried about rot. The "marine" plywood will rot out before the supports will.
