Are you absolutely, positively sure that noodles won't get water soaked after a while? I'm not. They weren't designed for long term immersion. Use the right stuff or don't bother.

Half inch ply is OK if it's properly supported; stringers no less than 16 inches apart.

Don't try to glue it down. Use the fiberglass tape and epoxy. It's far more stable.

You don't need to seal the underside with epoxy if you use marine grade plywood. The only need to seal the top side is to make it look good and prevent splinters. If you don't use marine grade ply then you will need to seal the crap out of all sides and do a lot of praying that it lasts more than a few months.

Use any good stain that you want to.
