Laurie Richardson (University of Guam) has done great work on this.

Subject: [Coral-List] Vessel grounding stabilization and coral relocation

Greetings Coral Listers, 
I have been presented with a project that involves restabilization of rubble
and coral head (up to 1m dia) relocation after a vessel grounding.  My
personal coral reef experience has been primarily associated with ecosystem
health and monitoring rather than rubble stabilization and coral head
relocation, and was hoping that some of you could point me in the direction
of some good literature/references/methods for performing such tasks.  The
work statement discusses using rebar and concrete for some of the work
(which seem like reasonable methods), however I would like to review other
alternative methods as well, if any.  Thanks for your time, hope to hear
from some of you soon.
