I suggested you replace with core material so that deck structure with similar qualities of stiffness and flexibility as originally designed can be maitained.Also,a heavy,solid lay-up can be difficult to fair without removing glass again. Since it is mast step area,all epoxy and 17 oz. material will definitely do the job-I missed the size and type of boat-just be aware if cabin top is lightly built and supposed to give a bit ,it probably won't anymore
