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

The textbook way to repair a hole in a high stress area is to grind out the area to a flat taper, (slope sides 3 or more times the depth of the hole)and build up fiberglass cloth and epoxy. If the hole that size was somewhere else than right in front of the rudder you might have gotten by with just thickened and reinforced epoxy on a hole that small.
