whats everybody using to fill intake grate holes?
whats everybody using to plug up the intake grate holes and the area between in the grate and the rideplate? ive been using magnum marine epoxy but its been ripped out twice already (my rideplate hole fillings are holding up fine and they are magnum epoxy too). i cant find right stuff silicone anywere...the autoparts store has 20 other different types of silicone EXCEPT for the one i need. so what else are you guys using thats sandable and strong enough to hold?

I use GE silicone. available at Home Depot or Walmart. Make sure holes are clean and dry. Use a spit wetted finger to smooth it out. I have not lost a "plug" yet. Been using it for years too.

I have used this epoxy on all types of boats for 25+ years.
It will even set up and cure under water! I know because on my first
boat I was installing a bildge pump and decided to drill holes through the
bottom while in the water. Kinda of a nice fountain effect......whipped out
my Marine Tex and pluged it up.

Used JB weld on the ride plate holes, and GE silicone on the grate holes. The JB weld held up but the silicone was ripped out after the first ride. I need to find something better for the grate holes.
