I had to reposition a cabin top block after I realized where I put it would interfere with something else (like stepping the mast, duh on my part)...usually if I'm filling a hole in a thinner area I just put tape on the inside, then fill with a mix of epoxy and filler. But since this was such a deep hole, like 3", I coated a 2-3/4" length of hardwood dowel in epoxy, drove it in the hole, counter sinking it a bit, and then finishing the top off with a thickened mixture. Kinda replicates the original structure I guessed - wood core and skin on top.

(really I did that, I put a block to lead a vang line back right behind the mast a ways....dumb)
