If you screw back into the solid epoxy plug resulting from the repair, what screws do you recommend? I seem to recall somewhere seeing advice not to use wood screws, but drill the epoxy and use sheet metal screws to cut threads in the epoxy.

The turning blocks on our 34II were screwed in. Since you have a leak there is probably rotted balsa core. I would carefully drill down without piercing the lower layer of glass, remove rotted balsa and fill with epoxy. That will stop the rot and give you a solid place for the screws.
