i've had good luck almost drilling through weith a 3/16 bit and then using a 1 inch countertsink bit to make a funnel shape. i drill tyhese holes on about 1 inch centers, let things dry and then inject epoxy. when installin anything in a cored deck i always overbore, fill with epoxy and then rebore the correct size. i always bed witgh polysulfide, never 5200. i'm the yard carpenter in san carlos, mexcico and have a lot of excperience with this type of repair. use a hairt ndryer to hasten drying. there is no balsa corfe on my mark one. are you sure asbout your core?
