Going to be doing some body work and some rattle can painting stuff on the back of the Vulture this weekend finally to get me by until I can get the whole boat painted and wondering what I should use to fill in the holes in the transom? I do have a little bit of duraglass and also some Marine-Tex Epoxy Putty here I can use. All suggestions welcome. Thanks.

Just installed my transom and it looks similar to yours now with plugged holes and patches, etc on the back side.
I am going to clean, sand and make it flat, then a layer of glass over it. Then get it prepped and ready for when the boat gets painted.

This picture was a practice fit with clamps in place before it actually got glassed in.
