rotting wood

Is there something I can fill a few screw holes that are stripped out due to rotting wood? I need to get through this summer before a rebuild next winter.

There are a couple quick fixes depending on the size of the screw and what it's holding.

I have cut plastic zip ties and put them in the hole and cut them flush. It works good in fiberglass.

In wood I have also used small dowels glued in place.

Just remember to seal any holes good.

If the backside is accessible you can also use a small block of wood and a longer screw.
