Thanks for all the suggestions. I contacted West System epoxy and they sent pretty specific directions for using fiberglass and epoxy to fix the hole, which they thought was no big deal. Other folks have told me that that kind of fix won't last. I think I will see about having an aluminum repair plate welded over the area, as the rest of the tank seems sound. And I will certainly pressure test any repair that is done.
