Help!! I am sinking..(i screwed up)

OK i admit it.. i was in the process of repairing blisters on the hull of my San Juan 7.7 and the little rasp on my drill penetrated the hull. Yep I drilled a hole in my boat!!!!
the the whole is concave - tappering to a to a point smaller than a dime - the actual "hole". My intention was to grind out the blisters - let dry fill with west systems epaxy and filler etc etc... but now I have a different problem and I just plane need some advise -

How do i fix this hole. it is on the stern just forward of the rudder post. Like I said, smaller than a dime. the fberglass is no more than 1/2" thick at this particular spot.

any ideas or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks, Gil
