Oops! I drilled a hole in my hull!

If you can''t get to the water side of the hole get an 8-32 stainless steel or bronze machine screw and an 8-32 tap. Tun the tap into the hole to thread it, then screw the screw in. A bit of caulk on the screw threads before inserting it will help seal it and prevent its vibrating out.
