When you seal up holes in the floor, is it protected from moisture beneath?

I have quite a few holes in the floor that I plan on sealing by welding.

But do I have to then go underneath and treat the new welding beads with anything to protect it from moisture?

When it rains and water splashes up underneath, wonít it start to corrode?

And while weíre asking dumb questions, whatís the best metal to use for bolts/nuts that go through the floor to prevent corrosion?

It is totally possible I donít understand a core concept here, Iím used to dealing with saltwater sailboats so Iím always concerned about different metals and water.

My 2 bits here...I'd just slide under the bus with a rattle can and touch-up...I'd just use bolts comparable to those taken out...but I'm not a expert

Any reason not to just use JB Weld?

Edit: Or are we not talking about seat bolt holes here?

Yep, just from the seat bolts, and Iím thinking JB weld will do the trick. Thanks.
