Bought a new aluminum boat and the guy I got it from had a micro jacker on it. My motor is a clamp on so now I need to fill in the mounting holes. What's the easiest/fastest way? I plan on putting a micro jacker on next year or I would have them welded.. also can't put bolts in them cause there in the way. Would plugging with wood and 4200 work. Then maybe epoxy the outside so I would be able to sand flush and still be able to paint it work? If so what's a good company to get it from and a convenient place to get it ie. Home depot

Marine-Tex. tape one side of the holes and fill with the marine-tex. Sand it smooth and when your ready to remount with bolts just drill it out.
