New Compass mounting...

I did a search but don't see the exact answer I need....

The circa 1980 Airpath that came on my Catalina 22 (even though covered) fell apart (literally)

I pulled it out and picked up an E.S. Ritchie.

The problem:

Some crack smoker hacked a hole in my bulkhead that would make an 8 year-old with a sawzall proud..... i.e. its 3-4 times larger than the required for the new compass...

How should I patch that hole?

Marine plywood, west epoxied in... covered with fiberglass mat?

Any and all thoughts are welcome!
