Fiberglass Bow Tip Repair


Earlier today I made the huge mistake of hitting the pillar of my dock at the marina. Yes, it was an operator error, yes it was very windy, and I take full responsibility over what I did and will definitely take this as a huge lesson learned .

However, I have a question on how to go about the repairs. My pulpit is toast for it has bent back. The tip of the bow that the base of the middle fork of the pulpit was ripped off because of the sheer force. Thankfully no screws were ripped out of the deck. The place where the fiberglass broke off was on the outer part of the boat so there are no holes/leaks exposed to the cabin.

I would really prefer to do the repairs myself. Any suggestions on how to go about doing them? I have a friend who has done fiberglass repairs before on a hull. Also, an estimated cost would be great to. Please do not criticize for I know my mistake and am definitely embarrassed enough, just any repair advice would be extremely helpful.
