I have a 79' CHB 34. The wood block at the rudder post is kind of soft I'm thinking of drilling some holes and injecting penetrating epoxy then applying as much as I can get it to absorb and painting it with epoxy paint.Anyone have another idea or do you think this will do the trick?

Welcome aboard!
There is a product called Git Rot that is an epoxy designed for doing just what you suggest. I've seen mixed results with it. In my opinion wood rot is a cancer that does not respond to chemo therapy. Cut out the rot and replace it with good wood. At the same time figure out how water was getting to it and fix it.
