Wetting out horizontal holes?

1798 Views 10 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  George Da Porge
So, we are replacing the rubber in our rub rail. Before inserting the new rubber I am going to remove the track and inspect all of the screw and bolt holes. If I need to repair any of those I would plan to drill out and fill with thickened epoxy. However, if the standard practice is to wet out the holes first w/unthickened epoxy, how does one keep the unthickened epoxy in the horizontal hole for a few minutes? And then what's the easiest way to get it out?

It is very difficult to get a handle on the phrase "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" on a boat, but I have learned from many, many bad experiences trying to do 'the right thing" that if it ain't broke, REALLY, don't fix it. I repeat, many, many bad experiences.
