You might try pieces plastic packing tape on the underside of the holes to keep the seam epoxy from dripping through, then peel them off after it sets up. That way no mess and the holes themselves are filled flush with the underside.
So the plans seem to be purposely unclear with exact locations because wood and each builder vary just a bit too much. Probably the best way to figure out the location is to use the chines like a batten. Clamp the aft half of the chine into the notches of the aft frames except leave it loose on the ...

Looks like lots of fun! The black and white photo looks like a period promo shot for the sales brochure! Certainly should be framed and hung on the wall of Fame.
