hatch rebuild

Greetings,
The lazerette hatch on my C24 was built with a mahogany frame, 3/8 plywood inset and mahogany planks overlapping the frame by about a half inch.
I have access to thick enough mahogany stock to eliminate the plywood (it rotted) and just route the new boards to fit in the frame and overlap to seal it with some Sikaflex.
Anyone see a problem with this method?
Why would the factory use plywood under the boards?
Will the thicker boards change their shape more with moisture fluctuations?

Eagerly,
Greg
