Foredeck repair/recoring help/ideas needed.

I have a 20'' Buccaneer whose foredeck is very soft on the starboard sidefrom the hatch to owards the bow. I know the wood has rotted under the fiberglass due to leaking around the hatch. I want to repair this, but don''t know really where to start. Is this a balsa core, or is it plywood? If the port half of the deck is ok, can just the starboard half be repaired, or does all of the wood need to be taken out and replaced under the whole deck? Do you just epoxy/fiberglass new wood in?
Any help would be appreciated.
