Filling Screw Holes

Its been a while since my last post. I spent a couple days doing preventative maintenance on my truck. I have also been looking for a good wood filler for filling the screw holes in the side planking. That took a lot of trial and error with several products.

I finally found a product I like. Its from Elmers called ProBond. It comes in several colors, non of which match my wood. I can mix them to get a very close color match though. Here are the 3 that I am using. Red Oak is the base then about 25% walnut and 5-10% mahongany gives me a color very close to that of my wood.

Here are a couple pictures of the putty applied and then sanded. This batch is a little light in color but its the bottom of the side of the boat and will be painted later. The color around the top of the sides matches better but doesnt photograph well.

Only 110 more holes to go on this side.
