MarineTex is epoxy putty, it is perfect for the repair. A lot less fuss than fiberglass, totally compatible, perfectly stable and at least as strong. You can make a more complicated repair, you can make a more expensive repair, but I doubt you can make a better repair for this job.

sd, if the typical cored deck is generally over an inch thick...you don't trust an epoxy plug that is bonded to something an inch thick?! I'd just bevel out some of the core if it was balsa (and leave it alone if it was Brunell ply) and trust it. And that's from seeing how similar epoxies have held up over the years, in structural uses. Step on it? Heck, you could "riverdance" on it!
