Re: Need to seal this up:
I have a similar issue; the original 12VDC fitting for the OB was corroded, so last year I just made a longer pigtail for the motor and ran it through the scupper to the battery; bypassed the fitting completely.
This year, I'm already in the water with a new engine; the new cord is not round and I also have a transducer cable to run to the stern. My plan is:
!. Pull out the old fitting to open up the hole
@. Seal the inner surface of the hole with epoxy (probably not done when drilled)
#. Run both cables through the hole
$. Anchor the cables on the inside of the opening
%. Goop the opening up with black silicone (as neatly as possible)
That should kick the can down the road until next season. There are only so many hours available for commissioning.
