I really don't think that 1/4 or for that matter 1/2 hole or two will weaken any boat stringer. As far as wire chipping off epoxy, maybe. A big maybe. But the question was to drill holes for a drain hole, not to run wire. Wiping the holes & drilling them may take 5 minutes to do. Using thickened epoxy makes the job into a multi day job, when it doesn't need to be. I said before I used 50 grit belts on a belt sander and epoxy just torn those belts up. I really think it's a moot point, and your making a job take longer then it needs to be. Both ways will get the job done.
I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.
