Or get a couple of Rip Rap bags and drop them in there. http://www.quikrete.com/productlines/RipRap.asp

It is a river and I can be stealth...he'll never see me. There's a ton of private ramps on this area so i don't think I'll have a problem.

I like the concrete idea. Do you think I can just fill and level off the hole with concrete? I don't want to have to pour a large pad.

Has anybody heard of blue rock? This is what the owner suggested to me today.

No tides on the Great Lakes. Too small to be affected

Go with the quick Crete route. Maybe even pound a piece of rebar right down the middle before filling the hole.

I would be hesitant about pounding straight rebar. If the patch breaks up, its tire damage waiting to happen.
A horseshoe shaped piece with both ends planted might work as could the addition of another piece of light mesh wired to it.

Assuming the hole is not too large, dropping a bag or two of quikrete every year may be the easiest but over engineering the repair may help preserve the ramp's overall life where total replacement may be difficult or prohibited.

We used river rocks on our ramp wher it had a drop off. 4 years and still working. They get packed in pretty solid by rolling a loaded trailer over them. The cheapest fix anyway.

Years ago I helped install a ramp. Framed it up with 2x8's and then started pouring in bad mix and using a drywall mud masher to mix it into the lake water. Wasn't the smoothest thing ever, and probably would've been cheaper to have a load delivered. I couldn't believe how many bags were involved. That was roughly 1990, and it's still in use today.
