Removing Winches on a Teak Deck

Looking to clean up the winch farm on the boat, starting with the mains. There are 3 winches on each side of the mast, 2 have a dedicated rope clutch and 1 has a cleat. Looking to remove two winches/clutches and add a 3-rope clutch. My question is, where can I get instructions for sealing the leftover holes in the fiberglass and teak? I assume it is easy to fill the hole in the fiberglass with epoxy or some other sealant. I do not know how best to patch the holes in the TDS teak deck.

Re: Removing Winches on a Teak Deck

If its real teak, a teak plug will work well. Cut down to just protruding with a SHARP chisel, then sand flush.
