Did it with Aluminum

I used some aluminum tubing with about 1/8" wall thickness to do this on the bow and stern rope holes - used what seems to be the standard procedure of rough sanding tube outside to get fresh and rough grip, slathering hole and tube with epoxy, and ramming home.

Looks real nice, and no problems so far (but I've only had it in the water 4 times so far so it isn't conclusive yet).
