That'll work!

I build boats. This is how I do it. Measure twice, cut once, throw it out, repeat. It takes me a very long time to finish a boat.

Reinforcement for added components and the forces applied by them is of great importance on cored areas of a hull. Just food for thought.

Marinetex obviously will work. Out here in downunderland, I would use this stuff...it's moorvelous...and I have been know to drill a 'hole I find I no longer need...'

I've used that type of product before with great success. Thanks for the reminder.

Pete, I keep a tube of similar stuff on my boat. It has come in handy a couple of times. It would be fine for the OP's problem and would be less messy than Marine Tex. It does have a limited shelf life so I replace mine every couple of years, if I think of it.

Yes, MarineTex is epoxy. It's just pre-thickened.

Fill with epoxy, then use this on both sides:

STERN SAVER Stern Saver - Bone Whte | West Marine

This epoxies directly to the Whaler's hull.

"Measure twice, cut once, throw it out, repeat"

NEVER throw it out , there is always use for a shorter piece.
