Suggest that you
1. dry out the core by using a sealed 'tent' made of plastic film, containing either a deliquescent salt (Damp Rid) or silica gel (the same stuff used for drying flowers, etc.). If you useSilica Gel ... prepare it by 'roasting' in your home oven for 6-8 hours @ 350°F (let cool then 'seal' it from the atmosphere).
2. When fully dry, Inject a penetrating epoxy (Git Rot, etc.) and then repair the hole with thickened epoxy and then repair the gelcoat. If the core is 'dry', Penetrating epoxy will 'wick' through all the fibrous channels of the wood understructure.
