What boat are you working on, Myback?
You could use Whaleboard, It can never rot and it hods machine screws well, but it costs a ton.
The simple solution is to use exterior grade or marine grade plywood and never leave a screw hole open and unsealed.

I've seen one fellow replace the under-side deck liner of his 18' with 3/4" marine plywood then glass that over with one layer of matt and resin, all around. Seemed like a permanent fix, allowing he keeps future holes well sealed.
