rudder stuffing box

Without understanding your setup completely, I would lean toward setting the bolts in Epoxy (maybe with some thickener such as microballons). Then I would just fair the gouges in the bottom with the same thickened epoxy paste. Sand it down when it hardens, and paint it. You don''t need a barrier coat on epoxy - it is a barrier coat.
