Filling holes in aluminium mast

Recommended Posts

I have removed a cleat from my mast. Found 4 extra bolt holes underneath.

What is the best treatment for these holes? Fill with screws or rivets, or use epoxy or similar filler?

Threaded holes?.. find or make aliunium screws, locktite them in the sand flush before painting over... do not use any dissimilar metals if it can be avoided

why do you want to fill them?  For aesthetics?

To stop the rain/sea getting in.
