Drilled Hole in Hull Repair

My sailboat came equipped with a water depth indicator. There is a 1 inch hole drilled through the hull about 2 feet below the waterline where the transmitter or whatever it is called exited the hull. I have remove all this old equipment and now need to fill in the hole. Question is how do I do it. The thickness of the hull at this point is 3/8 inches thick. Do I try and fiberlass in and over it or plug it with something. Both sides are accessible. Thanks
