"It is not structural just filling in where the rotten wet wood was removed."

The rotten plywood Was structural, even if there is 3/8 GRP on the outside , the ply was to stiffen the area .

I would repair with the assumption it is structural, and use epoxy. It can do no harm, where assuming it is not structural, and later finding you were wrong would be a real PITA.

you cant fill in gaps with liquid nails
and anything surrounding a door or window should be treated as structural, even though it may not be, treat it as such and you will never have to worry about messing with it again....
i would go epoxy with any "glue" repair, i have seen liquid nails fail (the good stuff) due to moister and vibration over time
"busted knuckles"..... one more and i will have a complete set !

Epoxy for gluing the plywood to the underlying fiberglass, also epoxy coat the plywood to seal it. Then I use PL premium for gluing interior panels to the plywood core. Never had any failure of a PL premium construction glue in my past or present boat. JohnP
