How do you repair a hole in an aluminum boat?

  • Seriously, the best way to fix a hole in an aluminum boat is to take the boat to a weld shop and let them weld it with a Tig welder. If you can't afford to do that, small holes in an aluminum boat can be fixed with epoxy putty.

Use a rust-resistant stainless steel screw that will tap into the hole. Using marine epoxy, coat the crew threads thoroughly. Insert the screw into the hole and tighten, once tight, go inside the boat hull and apply a liberal coating of marine epoxy to the exposed screw thread.
