    Default Screw holes

    I'm going to take the bow rail off of my boat. What is a good way to plug the screw holes? I was thinking of drilling the holes a little larger then putting a piece of 1/4" dowel rod and covering hole with a couple of drops of resin.

    Mike assuming the holes are 1/4 in since you mentioned dowels that size. Are you planning on repaint? If not, I would countersink the hole, and install a countersunk stainless bolt if you bcan get a nut on the other side..
