Because the deck area above the chain locker is small, and you have the vertical surfaces of the bulwarks close at hand, then no plywood in this area is probably not a problem.
However, the securing of the bowsprit in this area is a problem. I would suggest a large piece of aluminum plate on the underside to spread the bowsprit bolt loads. Also, sampson posts in good condition help prevent the bowsprit from shifting aft under load.
