Epoxy resin and cloth designed for epoxy resin (Not CSM) is what I use.

This area should have at least 4 coats of epoxy resin applied wet on tacky to avoid sanding between coats.
Cover the exposed area and another 100mm so that the new mount sits on a clean and treated area.
Mark the desired location and check the level, you may have to grind some of the aft section away to fit the hull. When sits as desired sand the section around the bottom before the next step.
Mix some epoxy and hardener then add some Micro-fibres to mix to get something about peanut butter consistency, then spread a good size bead along your mark.
Place the mount moulding onto the mix and use a small round object line a bit of broom handle of a small fish paste jar to form a rounded coving inside and out. let this cure overnight.
Time for a light sanding and a wipe with acetone. Pre cut your cloth, pot 2 pairs of latex gloves on so you can pull a glove off if things get sticky and lay up over the coving after masking a neat finish line for the widest strip.
If you do the inside first you get less mess.
Let this cure and again wipe with acetone and apply a coat or two of High build epoxy primer.
After it cures, give it a light sand and apply whatever you like, including some antifoul on the inside that will be exposed.
Good luck and fair winds.
grind off the area that will be exposed under the mount and
Growing old is unavoidable. However, growing up is still optional.
