Use marine plywood.

You might PM catman529 or try a search. He replaced the transom in his jonboat a year or so ago with a piece of white oak I gave him and he had a post with pictures showing him resurrecting his old jonboat.

I replaced one a few years ago. I used treated 5/4 decking. I cut it to fit then coated it with fiberglass. I happened to have a sheet of 1/4 aluminum which I cut to fit across the top inside and out with a 6 inch wide piece calked and screwed on. Works great

If you use treated wood, make sure that it will not react with aluminum and "rot" it out. ACQ is bad about this, MCQ not so much
