    Filling small holes in hull?

    I took off those two tie-down loops off the back of my xpl. I need to know how to fill those 4 small holes left by the screws. Any suggestions?

    Any stainless steel bolts that will fit through the hole in the hull, snug, not loose...Bolt and washer through the hole, washer and locking nut on other side...Sealant on the bolt head between the head and washer, and sealant on the washer between the washer and the hulll...On the inside, sealnt on the washer between the washer and the hull...DONE!

    this will work for 3 of the 4 holes but the last one is covered in part by my exhaust fitting flange.

    just fill the hole with silicone......long story short I put a aftermarket oil pan on my 351w and it had a dip stick hole in the pan. So I filled the stock hole in the block with silicone and it never leaked oil so I would think it should work for you too.

    Just went out and did it with the marine sealent and it seems to be working fine. I guess when I ramp-test it we will find out if it worked.
