Your probably thinking of a Doweling Jig. You would need to come up with a way to attach it to the transom, maybe a suction cup?

On your drill jig, just use a couple of small wood screws in 2 of the holes to hold it in location, drill your remaining holes to size, then use them as your mounting bolts to then drill the 2 temp. screw holes to size.

I'd also seal your holes for the hoses and mounting bolts with resin to keep your transom dry.

Actually I was thinking to seal the raw exposed wood surface inside the holes with resin, and then using 4200/5200 for sealing the bolts and hoses in the holes.

This is what I did. Use a Q tip to get the resin in the holes. I also used 5200.

FYI, 3M 4200 and 5200 are almost the same. The only difference is that 4200 has half of the adhesive strength. It will seal just as well below the water line. It will also be easier to remove the tabs, if needed.
