What to use for subfloor

I'm replacing the interior of my 44' Lancer to be a bluewater liveaboard and plan to put in a half-inch subfloor under teak and holly sole. im wondering what material will best stand up to the rigors of salt life.

Any input will be appreciated,
CapC

Re: What to use for subfloor

Well if you can stand an extra 1/4", the treated plywood they use for pontoon boat decks has an amazing life span exposed to the elements and is 'only' about 85.00 a sheet...on the interior it should last forever+. Or you could just use treated 1/2" plywood from the local big box store, it has less plies and it thus 'wavier', but the floor beams should be close enough to pull 1/2" flat, at about 30.00 a sheet.

Not criticism, just a question. What is the reason for this

She was partially flooded during Hurricane Isaac in 09. Virtually all of the interior wood had rot.
