I have hit another little wall the plywood in the front window areas seems very frayed and weak. I am looking for a way to preserve the wood instead of having the wind screen built for me is their a liquid for wood that strengthens the plywood so that I can keep the old screen intact or am I going to have a new screen built? Any help is wanted? O by the way I finished my interior gel-coat today I high recommend min-craft for gel-coat and all their help.

I have to cover almost all the plywood in the 2 front pieces does this mean I drill many holes and pour the liquid through the many holes.

I have only used this product when a laminate was present, like a fiberglass skin. With rotted wood under the skin, one would have to drill holes thru the glass etc. for the Git-Rot to penetrate into the core/wood. I am not sure Git-Rot will restore "almost all of your plywood" to an acceptable state of repair. You may be able to "paint" it on and sand to some level of functionality but the cosmetics will suffer. If you have a windscreen of mush, you may want to consider replacing it, Git-Rot is not replacement wood by any means.
