Absolutely agree w/ sailing dog. To properly repair a problem like this requires cutting off the top layer, cutting out the rotten core, drying it out, filling in with new core (balsa or ply), glassing in with epoxy and mat, fair, paint.
The ejection method sited not only doesn't work effectively, but it was done wrong. Sometimes people do it on the deckside, but it takes a few months for the moisture to evaporate through the holes, and the rot is still in there. Looks like you just locked it in by going underneath. Moreover, it is not evenly spread throughout the voids in either case. The voids will always be there
However, doesn't look like this boat is for a transi, and may sail locally, so you may be fine for your required sailing purpose.
