I was just going to type "in before Fergal" and bang there you were

Marine Parts in Swords do a good selection and nationwide delivery for 5 quid

This one will suit a hog and a 4hp. I recommend the plastic ones I find the wooden ones dont age well

Use a steel bit it will cut through everything and won't be too hard on the fiberglass put a bit of masking tape where each hole is and use a punch to mark the holes and to stop the bit from walking.

No problem be sure to coat the holes and the bolts with silicone to stop any water getting into the wood in the transom.
