How fast is your boat? I had the nose cones on my boat and it actually went faster when I took them off. If you are not going well into the 70's you do not need them. I hate the damn things as the bondo constantly chips off and looks like crap plus as you can see the fill hole becomes a issue.

Put your best foot forward!

Ahh some fill over the drain hole ..But to change the oil you have to pull the lower off and flip it on its side .. I use the cardboard sleeve that comes with new spark plugs to prtect the threads as a form to build around the drain plug hole.. Just about any type of filler/ epoxy you use will eventualy start coming apart ..metal prep is key. I use evercoat 27 , light, waterproof and easy to work with.. Screw merc paint , black Krylon works fine..
