Unfortunately the other day while racing in about 15-20 knots of breeze, I was involved in an incident at a windward mark rounding. Essentially I was sandwiched between a 420 and a laser bow, and as both are harder than the hull of my laser, serious damage resulted (see image). Any suggestions as to a repair? Is it even worth it? I have talked to a few people who have fiberglass experience and they have said that it is a $1200+ repair, possibly much more if I want it done well, or of course I could attempt to do it myself if I can find the time. It was a sad day, and I would really hate to lose the boat. Luckily I have another boat to sail in the meantime, but (as I have posted in the wanted section) if I choose not to repair the hull I'll be looking for a similar (mid 1990's era) hull in pretty good condition that is not horribly expensive. This was a good boat, and I've had some great times sailing over the years, hopefully the hull can be saved, or if not replaced so I can stay out on the water. Thanks, and hopefully no one here will have to experience this kind of damage.
