Yes. What you need to do is cut it out until you reach the point where the gash is all gone and you have solid parent material. Don't try fixing it without knowing where the gash really ends. Then evaluate how to rebuild the hole with new fiberglass. I suspect that boat is solid fiberglass but very thin. If I am wrong and it has a wood core, you gotta get any wet or damaged wood out of there.

Have fun......
