Our former slipmates and good friends have a 2002 C310, which we've sailed and spent much time on. We've seen just about every sq inch of that boat - having lived on it for a week when cruising the islands with them during our early '04 transition between selling our last boat and purchasing True Blue.
Although Catalina uses some low-cost materials in their interiors, such as press-board and laminates, no where did we see any OSB (oriented strand board) panels used. As Faster implied, OSB would break down in minutes if exposed to the ocean environment.
My guess is the PO used that panel either as a template or perhaps a temporary patch.
