I have two small holes in my boat - these are the inlet and outlet for a
sal***er pump, now removed. Obviously, I wish to plug the holes.
What is the best way to do this?
The holes are small, close to one another, and 'clean', ie: they are sharply
ccut, etc. I am reluctant to cut a larger hole in the hull with bevelled
edges, etc. to do a 'proper' repair on such small holes, because the hull is
in good shape - no osmosis etc.
What I thought was that I could clean up the area round each hole, both insid
and out, including the insides of the holes. Then, drive tapered bungs of a
suitable size, soaked in resin into the holes so that on the outside of the
boat at least, the bungs are below the surface of the hull. Fill the resultant
depressions with chopped mat and resin, dry, sand and repaint. On the inside,
I would do the same with the addition of some layers of glass fibre mat over
a larger area.
Does this sound sensible, feasible? Comments and suggestions welcome.
