Thanks classic. I was gonna do that just a bit unsure if I could secure a patch like that but I found a post in your thread showing you did thata trick for plugging the hole behind the transom core:
- put a big chamfer on the interior side of the hole.
- give a solid rivet a healthy dose of 5200
- buck the rivet
- grind the bucktail flush with the transom skin; the chamfer will fill-in with aluminum that gets smashed down and hold the rivet in place even though you're grinding the protruding bucktail away.
