Re: Hole in hull
I think Marine Tex is a putty; I'm not sure if that is best.
1. Rough up the walls of the hole with a wood file or coarse sandpaper wrapped around a dowel; clean up the dust;
2. Put some duct tape at the bottom of the hole from the outside;
3. Pour some good epoxy in the hole from the inside;
4. Once the epoxy cures, fair it out and paint/seal it;
A 1/4" hole isn't going to be a structural issue; just fill it.
