Removing Monitor Wind Vane Steering

I''m going to remove the Monitor Windvane Steering that the P.O. installed so that I can us the davits. I''ll have to remove 16 bolts that hold 4 brackets. The hull of my 1976 Pearson P 365 is solid fiberglass; no core. Anyone have a suggestion as to what I should do to the holes which will remain?
Also, is anyone interested in buying the Monitor unit?
Any suggestions, tips, warnings, opinions gratefully accepted.

"V" out the holes using a countersink bit or a larger bit.
Use some "Bondo", if you like use the more expensive MARINE FILLER and search around to get some with a hardener close to the color of your hull. Cut off the excess bondo with a sharp wood chisel and sand it smooth with a fairly fine sandpaper, being careful not to mess up the finish on the surounding area.

The cost of a new Monitor unit (as listed on their website) with the wheel optional equipment and freight is about $3800.00.
I think $2500.00 is a fair price.
I have not used the unit. Janussea was on the hard for almost 2 years when I bought her. The "P.O." had cruised for 2 years prior to that. I guess it''s about 4 to 5 years old. It appears to be in good shape, only needing some polishing and some TLC.
I have the unit in my basement in Chester County, PA near Philadelphia.
