Patching holes in a plastic boat?

I recently found an older Perception Captiva 16 w/rudder, but it has a couple of holes in the hull where the previous owner had installed a trolling motor.

I realize I could probably install some carriage bolts and rubber washers, but I fear that would cause drag or eventually leak and soak the items in the rear hatch.

Should I pass on this boat in favor of something with no holes in it, or is there a way to more permanently repair holes in a plastic hull?

btw... The asking price is $400 w/o a rudder.
