swing keel housing hole/delamination

I bought a flying junior the other day that needs a little fiber glass work. I was wondering what the best method is to repair a few things. As you can see from the attachment there is a hole in the swing keel housing. There is also some delamination around the bottom of the keel. I have heard that the best way to fix this is to drill small holes every inch or so and fill them with epoxy.

Anyone have thoughts on this?
