gg30citation Thanks Everyone for all the info, I have a good measurement of the thickness that I need. I will also seal the edges with epoxy before I install the new piece.

paulk Okoume is probably overkill for an interior partition in the engine compartment that (now that you've fixed the drain?) isn't likely to get wet so often as it did. (How many years did it take for the original one to rot?) A standard marine plywood piece should be sufficient. Getting the same thickness as the original material that you're patching (either in mm or inches) will make it easier and leave it looking better than a mismatched color/thckness. Take a piece with you to the lumber supplier to make sure it matches, since the plywood makers and their marketing departments have been having fun increasing productivity by shaving thicknesses in some cases. (13/16" is the new 3/4", for example...)

JohnRPollard Sealing the edges is a good suggestion, but if possible, I would recommend coating the entire replacement panel (edges and sides) with epoxy. Additionally, primer and paint will offer some extra protection to the epoxy, from abrasion and engine heat (doesn't sound like UV will be an issue.)

Yep, and probably the cheapest - just make sure that you seal the ends (soak ends in epoxy) for the cutout...

I have discovered that there are several types of plywood available, Hydro-core, Okoume, and so on. I'm curious what would be the proper type to use in the repair. The dividing panel is one that separates the engine area from the compartment under one of the cockpit benches. Thanks in advance for any help.

Okoume will be probably your best bet
