Porta-Bote patch and misc.

Hi all,
I've recently purchase a 2005 Porta-Bote 12' in really good shape. However, the PO installed a drain through the transom. (see pic) He was using the boat as a lake fishing boat with no plans to ever fold it, whereas I will be folding it and hanging it on stanchions as my tender.
I have the feeling I'll need to relocate and patch the existing drain since it will be problematic to seal it effectively every time I unfold the boat.
Does anyone have any good suggestions on patching the polypropylene transom?

I have also been downloading and compiling manuals on all the equipment that's currently on the boat, a 1959 New Horizons. One item I've had no luck finding a manual for is a Navico Tiller Pilot 1800. I've found manuals for a 1600 and 2500, but these have a compass, and my 1800 does not, so I doubt the manuals are the same.

Last item, does anyone have a source on replacement mast boots? I've looked online, but I can't find one that fits my mast shape. (see Pic)
