Sealing floor seat holes

Hi,
Has anyone used 3M Marine Adhesive Sealant 5200 to fill the floor holes left from seat removal? If so, how does it hold up?

I have not done this yet, but I was considering spray foam. Sealant might be a more durable option.

We didn't have to fill the seat bolt holes, but tons of smaller holes from the seat rails. We used black windshield sealer which stays flexible when 'dry'.

Use pennies and a good adhesive. Working for me so far.

Same here. Just make a donut of caulk, JB Weld, or whatever adhesive du jour, around the bolt hole, and lightly moosh & give a little spin to the penny into it.
Wah-lah!

'MOOSH' - that's getting too technical for my tastes ;)

I'll be sure to dumb it down in the future...

I saw someone here use an adhesive roof flashing from Home Depot. They cut small pieces and stuck them over the holes.
