Question Aluminum Boat Question

I just purchased a 15 Sylvan. Noticed water leaking from the boat after a rain. There is a round hole about the size of a pencil point. I am guessing I need to fix it but was curious as to whether it was supposed to be there for some reason. It is right dead center on the keel, (raised channel that runs along the bottom of boat) and up towards the front. Looks like it was drilled but can't figure why it would be there. Anyone know?

There should be no holes in the keel, or anywhere else for that matter. The only hole should be the drain hole, where a plug fits.

JB weld or a marine epoxy putty will fill the hole.
