I removed a plastic water tank from a previous boat once and discovered blobs of caulking like substance adhered to the sides. This was apparently an attempt by the builder to dampen and isolate the tank from the hull and bulkhead it was attached to.

Is it possible that your "1" round blob" is not a patch, but an isolator of sorts, used to minimize vibration?
