When you cut the piece out how thick was the fiberglass ? I would think that there is more than just the risk of water leakage, that piece of fiberglass there supports the keel when up & provides the base for lifting it. I'd be too chicken to just cut it off & glass it back on. But as they say...whatever floats your boat! ...or NOT !
