If you can get at it from the flooding hole on the transom, drill a 12mm hole, let the water drain out then fill the hole with gelcoat or epoxy filler.

It's not too bad in there problem is drying out the ply that is sandwiched
Between two layers of fibreglass
I guess it will never dry out!
I come across the same problem at work bloody water will get in the tiniest of gaps!!

Plywood might dry through its own layers so if the wet area is not huge, you might get away by drilling some 100 mm holes through the GRP of the deck sandwich, only exposing plywood, not trough the plywood. Giving additional heat the wood will dry faster, but time it will take anyway. By using a 100 mm plywood pattern, one can remove the small guide drill avoiding not to drill through the deck.

fun on a boat is inversely proportional to size...sort of anyway
