Welcome aboard from me, too. I think the search function is your friend, you are certainly not the first to tackle this job. The only positive comment I can make is that once the fibreglass dries and you have your first celebratory drink (I recommend champagne!) the boat will feel more solid, the smells of must and rot will be gone, you will never have to renew a seam or a bung in a teak deck and the boat will have at least doubled in value.
Don't believe everything that you think.

Ripping out the dead house ply makes a very hard job.

Leave it all in place and lay up a new deck,on top, cored with good foam , if you can afford it.
