Re: Partially filling a void

Aha.... the 'bottom' layer is the liner, then? Are you sure the deck side is not cored? If they've bolted through the deck and the liner to that's unfortunate.. as you say the parts compress.. usually the liner ends up cracking at some point, they are usually pretty thin.

If the deck is cored there (likely) I'd be very tempted to drill some nice clean 1" holes in the liner below at each throughbolt, rebolt the traveler with fender washers (to the deck proper), and then find some bungs (you can get plastic knockout plugs from an electrical supplier) to close the holes.. it won't look as clean, perhaps, but your traveler will thank you...
