I looked, but couldn't seem to find the definitive answer to what is the proper stuff to fill Copper Rivet, and Bronse Screw Holes. Some of the old filler on my "New" Folkboat is comming out, and I'm wondering what I should replace it with. I also refastened the Garboards, and need to fill all of those screw holes.
The planking is either Cedar or Larch, and this is a Lapstreak Folkboat that will be used on/in Fresh water.

Thanks, and I will be posting a complete Website with Pictures of how I have been doing with my "Free Boat" soon.

Well, if the screws were covered with bungs (wooden plugs... sigh) and you still have enough depth to the holes, maybe 1/4" or more, you should glue new bungs in. If not, or if you are lazy, just slap some glazing putting in them. Interlux makes decent stuff. Sand it fair and paint over it. Works fine.
