Tapering

By tapering, you mean having the cloth end at different points out from the hole, so that they are not on top of one another?

So I start outside, clean prep and lay several size round peices of cloth, alternating direction of weave, and increasing in size.

Then fill the hole form the inside with resin? and perhaps some hole sized pieces of cloth?

Then do the same outside job, but on the inside?

Forgive me, but my fiberglass experience is limited.

I assume I would use epoxy resin and cloth for same?

I assume I end up with a bulge, or is there another way? This is on a solid core Westerly Fulmar.
