How to fill voids in floor

The plywood floor of my boat has lost its top ply layer in several areas, 1 - 10-inch diameter. Would Durham's Water Putty be a good product to apply to the voids to make the surface level & smooth?

I've wondered about that idea of leaving some root and letting it "live" in water. I've never seen it, but I don't get around much. You've seen it sold that way? I'm afraid that at my roadside stand...

It's time to stain my cedar siding and my wooden deck. In the past I've used Cabot Semi-Transparent Deck & Siding stain, which is oil-based. I like that I can use the same thing for everything....

My new Toro Flex Force battery-powered mower claims I need to store it at above 32 degrees. My garage is not heated. Do I really have to bring it into the house or other heated space for the winter?
