Engine Bed Build Up - Beta 14 CD27

I am working on mounting a Beta 14 engine to my Cape Dory 27, and am curious what the preferred method is for building up an engine bed. I have posted a picture of the current engine compartment. Additionally, I have posted a picture of someone who has successfully built up the engine bed for a beta 14 in a CD 27 as well.

On top of horizontal stringers, there is a steel plate, which was tapped to hold the previous engine mounts. Would the best method be to cut out the steel plate, clean up wood underneath and check for rot, then epoxy a new piece of hardwood on top and fiberglass it all together?

Looking for any ideas here! If you have seen a more creative solution - please let me know
