I would go back with marine plywood. Bulkheads are structural and plywood meets the strenght required. Just fix the leaks that let the water in and rotted out the plywood. There are a bazillion boats out there that have plywood bulkheads and didnít rot out. There may be a better solution, but at what cost? Plywood is tried and true.
