    That sucks. Not nearly as bad but I went to replace the tires on my trailer yesterday afternoon and realized the seals were bad.... so instead of fishing this morning I was rebuilding hubs.

    Turn it into your boat insurance and file a claim.

    It is possible for you to do the repairs yourself. I used to have a fiberglass boat. I switched to aluminum about 20 years ago due to the durability problems of fiberglass in a duck hunting environment. If you can locate a source to buy the materials(I used to have a boat manufacturer here in town), you can do these repairs yourself. I did massive repairs to my old boat over the years. Apply the cloth and resin, grind and sand to shape, you can save yourself a ton of money. Being on the bottom, you can just use anti-fouling paint to cover the repairs and it will look like you did it on purpose. If you have the place to do the work and are handy enough to do it. It is not hard to do, it is just time consuming. And itchy.

    What kind of boat is it? I'm far from an expert, but if it's a bass boat there's no way I'd try to repair the pad. Other parts of the hull are no big deal, but it the pad is screwed up the boat is worthless.
