Sea C Strider

Sea C Strider
I have a 1964 Sather 36' rebuilt fishboat that I bought 6 years ago and converted to a sedan cruiser.
I took her onto the hard 2 weeks ago for new survey,insurance,bottom paint,zincs and general out of water touch up.
She passed the survey and is insured but because slings were used to take her out and in she has now developed a constant leak on the starboard rear quarter.
I want to take her out and fix the problem properly but wanted to ask if anyone may have a a temporary solution as my budget was stretched on the original survey/fix up.
I've been told about floating sawdust in the area around the leak?
Using Fisherman's Cement on the inside? Is this regular cement?
Using Roofing Tar?
And is there an epoxy that works on wet wood? I know sikaflex doesn't.
I just need a temp fix till I can get her done properly in 3 to 6 months?
The photo is last year and have added stainless steel/wood railings, removed top tarpaulin and am adding a fwd.door on starboard side for easier access to tying up.
My Thanks to any suggestions
