Could also search 'cable glands' but the holes are usually too small for the plugs you have to pass through them.

I'd just talk with Viking Kayaks. I'm sure they'll send whatever they use down for you.

I have purchased clam covers, machine screws ,nuts and washers etc from the chandler at WestPark Marina before. I think he’s closed now, so Smart Marine in Glenfield might be the closest for you.
Clam cover either side , nuts and bolts , and filled with Selleys Allclear or Holdfast MS Clear or the Sika equivalent is all that’s needed.

I needed something similar and Burnsco sold the index brand which were perfect for my FF install.
