I'm no expert, but it seems that water/bilge gunk might have been trapped against the tank in that location since it is next to the fiberglass piece that s holds the tank in place. Another possibility is stray electrical current from one of the cables running in the area. The hole was less than 3/4" when I pulled the tank; it got that size when I barely touched it with one finger.
