I am working on getting the major repairs done on my 15 ft. whaler. I decided that I did not want these rod holders anymore and removed them. They were installed really poorly and I just didn't like where they were. I was wondering what is the best way to fill the large rod holder shaped void in my hull? I know I am going to need to do some patch work on top of it all, but what material would you guys recommend to fill the holes?

I have attached some photos.

A tapered plug of plywood would work. You will have to make the hole larger at the top and shape a plug to fit. Epoxy seal it beofre installing. There is a WEST system pamphlet on hull and deck repair that covers the technique.

Pour a little expanding foam in then use it as a base to lay glass on.
