    Filling Holes after Traction Mat Removal

    Hello to all , after I removed the traction mats from my 99 SeaDoo XPL I need to fill the rivet holes with something that fills the holes only and doesn't make a big mess . What type of long lasting material do you guys use ? Epoxy , or what ? My intention is to inject the holes only and without excess resin or epoxy spreading out past the rivet holes . Any good suggestions are more than welcome . Thanks

    I use marine tex, or JB Weld. JB Quick is nice, as it sets fast.

    Recently did this to a 91 xp. I ended up using GE kitchen & bath silicone...lol It is white and cures white, suppose it's tbd on how long it lasts... looks great with the white hull...

    IMO this is less than ideal. This would be less permanent, and traction mat glue will not stick to silicone.

    Hello to all , as a result I used 3M 08116 epoxy to fill the traction mat rivet holes after lightly drilling the holes to clean them up . This worked out great .
