If your boat is insured, the insurance company should cover the repairs from on the water damages. Sometimes, it is much cheaper to repair a damaged boat than to buy a new one, and insurers will usually see if the boat is repairable before writing a damaged boat off the books and replacing it.
Fiberglass boats are often the easiest boats to damage in the water, usually by running over a submerged branch or rock that the driver of the boat did not see. A fiberglass boat is relatively easy to have repaired, but it does entail getting the boat out of the water for at least a week.
A boat repairer will insert new fiberglass segments into the damaged sections and then sand the fiberglass back to match the finish of the original boat. Fiberglass repairs can be quite complex. Sometimes, a boat repairer will insert foam into the hole before creating a new fiberglass shell hull for the boat.
Aluminum boats can be easier to repair, especially if you have just dented the bottom of the boat. A boat repairer will hammer out the dent or will fix a new plate of aluminum over the affected area of the boat. A good boat repairer will ensure that the aluminum repair will not leak or rust by ensuring the marine grade aluminum patch has no areas where water can enter between the layers.
