If the rot is < 1inche around lift port, just scrape out the soft balsa between the lamenant with a tool, like a screw driver, until you clear it out. Tape the underside with duct tape. Then mix up and press in some polyester filler. Or, < 1 to 2 inches in force in some micro ballons with a big syringe; they expand. If its more than inches you're on the alternative repair.
