The decks of the Rhodes Reliant / Offshore 40 were wood cored fiberglass. Plywood was typically used as coring material under high load areas such as winches. While the Reliant was supposed to be built using end grain balsa as the core, other woods such as lauan were used in at least some of the boats. It would not surprise me in the least if a number of boats have plywood as the main core material.
