Enforcer, sorry to hear it.
On the brighter side, you joined a club that a few of us here are members of. Hence, my screen name.
Caught an unlit steel nun bouy on the starboard bow on my way home late at night and running too fast. I was young, and learned my mistake. Damage was somewhat similar to yours. Fortunately, I had full coverage. The guy that did the estimate and repairs made a deal with me that because he had to paint hullsides and deck, if I would help work on it, he'd do custom paint as long as the design wasn't too crazy. I just went with a gray to black fade finishing with checkers towards the aft.
So I got the chance to update the look of the boat on insurance money and labor.
Good luck in your search, but don't rule out repair.

bouyhunter , thanks for letting me know i'm not the only boater that has found a nav aid in the wrong way , lil different circumstances but same end result , unfortunatly i'm not covered by my policy , I figure my stupid mistakes have to be learnt the hard way (my wallet)
its all well above the water line so i might just break out the power tools and a gallon of resin and a bedsheet size piece of fiber mat and make a really crappy looking repair
i might be the worst looking thing on this river , but not the slowest by any means
as long as i have fun right?


and gassticks , a 27 excaliber would be awesome , right up my alley , i did kinda want to go a lil longer
find out and pm me , if its a good deal there could be a finders fee in there

Honestly, it doesn't look like that bad of damage.
I needed all new rubrail (entire hull) glass work, balsa coring, and paint. I think the bill was under $4K.
Cheaper than buying a new (used) hull, and I loved the boat, though it wasn't much.
Hell, boat was only 14K when I bought it a year or two previous.
Mind you, these dollar values are about ten years old, but something for reference.
Hope it helps.
And BTW - there's at least 3-4 other guys here that have admitted to running down a nav-aid. By odds of percentage, that means there is probably at least 50-100 more.
Yeah, it sucks, but we all learn lessons on the water - things happen fast, even if you're running slow.

A friend of mine is looking for a 27 Excalibur just like what your talking about. He has cash and is ready to buy.
