Question glasing thru hulls

I HAVE BOUGHT A GRP BOAT WHICH HAS OLD THROUGH HULLS GLASSED FROM INSIDE ONLY. CAN I FILL OUSIDE WITH MARINE TEX OR EPOXY AND MILLED GLASS FOR EXAMPLE OR IS IT BETTER TO GRIND AND GLASS. i HAVE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE; THERE ARE TWO SEACOCK HOLES CLOSE BY EACH OTHER; DO i SAND A 12:1 AREA AROUND BOTH OR HAVE 2 INTERLOCKING "CIRCLES" OF SANDING IF YOU SEE WHAT i MEAN?

IMHO, you're better off grinding and glassing rather than just filling... If the two holes are relatively close to each other, I'd treat them as a single opening and grind around them accordingly. It'll be simpler to repair them that way.

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.
