Just for the benefit of future hatch rebuilders:
Since doing some research, for me, as a woodworker with some experience, I will probably go with the Resorcinol glue to glue the old teak strips to new plywood substructure (the newly sanded teak strips to new marine plywood surface), and SIS 440 caulk for seams of teak strips.
The prior owners had repaired quite successfully with epoxy which after whoknowshowlong held even as I was breaking the old mahogany plywood out of the frame (with some sweat and equipment, by the way). I actually had to give up on the remnants of the epoxy on the frame and hit it for a good while with a heavy duty grinder/sander.
If I were not very confident in my woodwork, I would most likely use the West system epoxy as a glue to joining teak to plywood or a great caulk like the SIS 440.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
