  I have the same boat
  Posted by: jackL on Jan-15-14 6:31 AM (EST)

and had similar damage when it blew off the racks while I was loading it, and repaired it myself from the outside.
I used the epoxy stick that you squeeze to mix.
On mine the bottom bolt area was ok,, and on the top I coated the bolt with vasoline and screwed it in while the the epoxy was still soft. Then when it was almost hardened I screwed it in and out a few times.
I held my breath when it was all done, but it held just fine for several years until I traded it in for another one.
If I were to do it again, I would use West System two part epoxy with a filler and make a putty consistency out of it.
If the boat is for less than grand, I would probably buy it.
That repair is impossible from the inside, unless you have a trained midget snake that you can send in there.
