Landlocked: I'm not sure if the sole is cored or not. I plan on beginning to cut it out sometime in the next couple weeks and will then see what's under the sole.

Man, that's gonna be a JOB!

Before you start cutting, drill a few holes in discreet places and see what you get. If it is cored it's better to peel up as big of pieces as you can so that it can be put back again. Saves some swearing in the end!

While it certainly is a good idea to seal the edges of any plywood as an extra precaution, marine grade plywood is far less susceptible to rot as it is specially treated to prevent rot. That's one of the reasons it is far more expensive. It is also made up of more and thinner plys and waterproof glue.
