I pretty much avoided the end pours by shaping a piece of pine to mostly fit into the end where the pour was supposed to go. Then I bedded it in a big blob of epoxy/woodflour putty (very stiff mix). It ended up very firmly in place with all the gaps filled by the putty. It's lighter (wood floats, epoxy is neutrally buoyant) and cheaper (much less epoxy) than an end pour.

Since the wood piece is bedded in putty, it does not have to fit anywhere near exactly. Just cut an approximate shape from any old scrap and take whacks at it with a chisel or plane until the gaps are 1/4 inch or less.
