I've used a heavy duty flashing material or flexible sheet metal... pop rivets, then JB, and bondo on the outside. You've got to get it "squeaky" clean! It works... of course the holes are no bigger than a quarter (at most). Good Luck, Joe in Jersey

I fixed a few with a second scrap deck that rusted out somewhere else, I cut out the section needed and plated it on the inside or outside, worked really well, have done it twice on two seaparate decks, saved a bunch of time and money for my buddy. Stronger than fiberglass, one deck I welded and the other we did the modification on sight with just bolts to keep him cutting.

I used fiber glass and epoxy to fill in holes in a deck --- worked good --- used two layers of fiber glass coated with the epoxy from West Marine. I had the material on hand for other work. I also painted the inside of a good deck to protect from rust.
