Outboard mounting.

My outboard is mounted with holes that are drilled through my boat at the bottom of the outboard mounting bracket. When I take the outboard off, how will I go about patching these holes?

I will be putting the outboard back on as well.

Re: Outboard mounting.

You are going to put the same motor back on? If so why fill the holes?

Maybe I misunderstood what you are saying...

Yea why fill unless using a different outboard. Then it can become more difficult. Not hard just different situation.

3m 5200 is great stuff.

Re: Outboard mounting.

Im going to be using the boat without the outboard and I'm pretty sure the holes will be below the water level. I guess I'll just have to open them back up when I put the outboard back on.

Re: Outboard mounting.

Just get some good size washers and a tube of 5200 and put the bolts back in. Use the 5200 very liberally, easy job.

5200 is made for use below the waterline.

Jb weld makes a marine putty. Traded my 50HP got a 25 and the holes were higher up the transom. Easy to roll and no leaking
