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.

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.

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.

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
