What is the best way to fix a small pin hole in a pontoon besides welding?

Anybody have recommendations or know anyone that will weld up a small hole in a toon?

Liquid Metal, Napa Auto Parts. We plugged a small hole in a diesel tank.

Any sort of epoxy, or epoxy putty should do fine on a hole that small. Just be sure to scuff the area good with 80 grit sandpaper for maximum adhesion.

Not sure name is, it in tube like putty, is is 2 parts, pinch of. Piece size of nickel, mush together, it will adhere even underwater. It works I used on alum boat bottoms.

JB weld makes a putty like 410man mentioned. it's a marine type & I've used it on many of my boat repairs. I bought it at Academy for $5 & it's worth it's weight in gold

Thanks guys! I used a marine epoxy made by Loctite, I believe. Seems to be working, just nervous about it. When I pull the boat out in late summer, I might get her welded.
