Previous owner installed a fire extinguisher with too long of screws and screwed them through the bottom of the boat. This is a 28 year old Skeeter. Not looking to take it to a Fiberglas shop. What would be best to reseal this with? Thanks

Remove the screw and use Marinetex.

As others have mentioned, Marine-Tex is good. I prefer the Brownell's Acra-Glass kit epoxy. It's the kit designed for bedding rifle stocks. Stuff is tough as can be & can be dyed to color match. Repaired screw holes below the water line on an '89 Champion years ago and the repairs are still in tact and holding strong.
