Yes, removing the transducer would make sense.
Sealing the hole would be a typical fiberglass repair, where you grind the hull at about a 12:1 taper around the hole. If the hull is 3/4" thick, you'll need to grind an area 3" wide around the hole...then lay up new glass starting with a piece the size of the ground out area and continuing with slightly smaller patches.
Ideally, this type of hole should be patched from both sides....

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
