Just the glass work I guess gelcoat would be in the thousands
And it wouldn't match because the rest is faded

Should be the other way around it should cost more to do glass work due to all the labor involved to do it right

Is the quote from Rick at Islander Marine.  If so, those guys are totally legit.  Doing the glass patch really isn't that hard, but matching the gel is much more involved an technical that you would think.

Just got a quote for 485 to fix the damage minus new gelcoat
Feel like I should fix it hammer it for the summer then swap hulls ?
Baha'is it possible if I found a better drive that I could swap when I switch hulls ?

Me personally, this is probably what I would do.  Under 1500.00 total investment, and your boating for the summer.  Just shoot primer on the patched area and enjoy the boat.  especially if you don't have the time and tools to do a hull swap right now.  After the summer you can look around for a replacement if you still want to do that.

Yes it's islander marine rick was the estimator and owner I think
He said matching he gelcoat would be the expensive part
And pretty much mirrored what icecreamman just said fix it enjoy it sell it make some money buy a nicer boat next season
This hasto be the most helpful group of guys I've ever met on the Internet !?!
Thank you all so much !

On point. Fix it and beat it this summer then find a hull this winter with a Berk and transfer your motor. Bam !

Have them fix it and throw a wrap on it.

Or have it fixed, primer and leave it and it'll be a cool conversation piece

They reccomended glassing the bulkhead in that's behind the gas pedal for rigidity
So I can't get a pic in there anymore
What I saw before they did that looked like they made a piece that was a foot wider than the hole and stuck it on with a few layers looked like a different kind of Mat than the original stuff
It  looked semi pretty just stuck out like a sore thumb
Repair has a guarentee tho haha  guaranteed that the boat will break around the repair if it broke ever haha
