Bulkhead/genoa screws/chainplate fixes

Thankyou for all of your responses. I''ve done alot of research and talked to some friends. I like to get as much info as possible.
Genoa track: I''ll pull the track, clean out the damaged core, rebed it ( I came up with West Systems, epoxy 105, hardner 205, filler 406) then redrill and seal it up with Life Calk. Same story on the chainplates.
Bulkhead: It''s such a small section I''m thinking I''ll cut out the bad wood and a bit into the good wood. Shape the the new piece (marine grade plywood). I''ll seal it with West System epoxy and then "put the piece in the puzzle". I''ll epoxy the edges prior to fitting then epoxy the whole area with a rollor to hopefully make it one solid piece.

Any further suggestions, go for it.
