So much for 5 mins haha I would have to assume this would be more permanent the just pulling the floor board and filling the hole with epoxy

Re: Hole in hull

I'm glad this has come up as I have some holes from old seacocks to fill. The old ones had 4 holes and the new ones have 3. My holes are already bevelled from the bolt heads so i think i will use the 105 epoxy mixed with 406 silica to thicken it and some small pieces of fibreglass thrown in for strength. I have to fill my holes from the outside.

Re: Hole in hull

i think the holes you have are a bit larger than mine is I say 1/4 in but realistically its prob 1/8 i would say a bb would barely fit in it. my original plan before asking people that knew what they were doing was to mix some resin and hardener up then roll up a tiny amount of fiberglass to fit in the hole. then soak it in the resin and stuff it in the hole. seems like others may have better ideas though

Re: Hole in hull

How did you get your hole? Was it a drill hole that was filled?

Re: Hole in hull

it was a small drill they used to allow the boat to drain if any water got in over the winter trust me if that much water got in there (the hole was not well placed) i think you have bigger issues. the hole has never been filled
