Repairing the framing under the teak deck aft

I have an album setup.
This is a job I wanted to do couple years ago. I did the starboard side 2 years ago, and it has been good.
I am using PT lumber, has very few knots.
I have done extensive rebuilding on this boat, and anywhere structural I used PT SYP wood, carefully selected.

Another good product is PL Premium Polyurethane CA.
Sometimes I mix it with sawdust as a filler.

This structure is incredibly strong when in good condition. It is a solid 6 inches thick in width, and has a curve. Then 3/4 plywood lays down into the groove formed by the support piece not shown here. And teak boards attach to the top.
