How to seal holes between frame and fiberglass body?

I need to seal the hole in the fiberglass body and wooden floor where the frame bolts pass through to keep water and bugs from entering. I am considering adding a rubber gasket or something from the underside but I'm concerned this will create an inconsistent surface between the frame and body. I could fill the hole with butyl putty but that seems crude. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Thanks
Fredomatic

I would use Lexel or Dicor calking it will soak in some and seal the wood.
