My guess is that Tartan went and replaced the balsa core with marine plywood to act as a backing plate for the winch installation, since marine plywood has a much higher compressive strength compared to foam or balsa.

I would highly recommend you fill the holes with thickened epoxy and then drill the new holes, pot them properly and then add a fiberglass backing plate underneath the deck.
