Once the stick came down I couldn't/can't afford to procrastinate - I've got until late April to make it a sail boat again.

For my next trick watch me slap West system 105/406 and some filler into all the holes and then plaster some glass.

The hard part will be to make a raised landing that comes up/out precisely enough to support the new plate - but not enough to angle it too much, and it has to be flat and even or it won't distribute the load evenly.
Oh yeah, and I have to do it four times.
Lessons learned are opportunities earned.
