Wow, Some people should not attempt to be shade tree mechanics!
Just flip the hull upside down and fix it. It isnt that hard of a fix. Just grind off all that drippy resin and clean it up so You can see what it really looks like. then build it up with some csm and shape it back to the right shape.
Here is a pic of what they should look like. This was My 73 Kona, after I blueprinted the bottom. Same hull as yours.

Wow! That will take some work to fix, but not impossible. You really do need to flip the hull over. It will make the job alot easier. That repair reaal needs to be done from the inside, but I am afraid that the way the hull is finnished on the inside, it may not be posible.

That looks exciting!  I love the chain around the pump, seemed to have worked out just fine.

There is a rope there that was use to lift and support it, the chain was there  just in case the rope broke. Couldn't do that up front so we just paid more attention to the the front as it rotated.

Your father must of hated you to have you do that lol. She came outside and asked what I was doin and wanted to help. Standing at 4 foot tall she's a whopping 64 pounds and she worked that 20 pound buffer for almost a full hour before she told me she couldn't feel her arms, and she buffed the entire log and snail. Even asked me this morning if she could do the other one after school today.

Any one Need anything polished? Lol
