    Damaged Eliminator Question

    1990 Eliminator took a shot to the right front Sponson at the running light. I hot a rock embankment on the way to getting it detailed. The boat has a whole approx. 10-12inchesx5inches around thru the deck and side(right at the rubrail)
    The boat jumped after hitting the embankment and jumped smashing the floor just behind the winch. From the boat jumping it also cracked the inner gimble which holds the steering assembly on the inside gimble which is made of cast. I'm looking to see if this type of damage is repairable or based on the impact and structure consider it done?
    I have photos and would like to some info if possible from anyone familiar with this type of damage. The hull is original Gel with 4 Gel stripes which surround the boat. The gel is on top of wood(Bulsa?) A big problem is access to the damage. Labor to remove the birth/interior/labor to replace the wood/Gel/Stripes?

    I guess it would be up to the insurance company as to whether or not its fixable or should be salvaged.
