Repair holes in outboard

I have just serviced my outboard but also winterised it so now its sitting in the garage.

I'm planning on some minor repairs but need to know whats best to use.

I have four holes left in the cavitation plate where once upon a time there were some doel fins.

What can i use to fill the holes? and once filled and sanded is it a simple case of spray on some primer and mercury black paint?

Any advice on what metal filler to use?

Thanks all.

Matt.

Plastic Metal, or metal epoxy is great for this, if you can lightly countersink both sides of the hole and fill with THIS, then smooth back and paint.. Military use this type of stuff for BDR.

Brilliant, and only 5 from Halfords. I was expecting it to cost quite a bit as with most boating bits. Thanks very much for that.

Super, will have a look between the two mentioned as the other only has a working time of around two minutes according to one review so i'm clearly going to end up in a mess if i have to work it so quickly.
