Filling the holes with a thickened epoxy or epoxy putty is probably your best solution. OhioTom's suggestion is unwise, since stainless steel will have galvanic corrosion issues with aluminum and may lead to future issues.

Windborn's idea is a good one, but far more work with little advantage over using an epoxy putty.

I would be hesitant to do that, as it may affect the epoxy's adhesion. Of course, you could always call the manufacturer and ask them.
If your spar is painted white or clear anodized - Marine Tex comes in both white and gray so you may not even neeed to paint.

On that note - has anyone ever tried to color white Marine Tex with gelcoat coloring agents?
