A hole wouldn't stop me if the price was right and the damage wasn't too bad. Properly done there shouldn't be a way to tell in the future where the repair even was. A friend has Spencer 35 that was holed on the beach at Oak Bay in Victoria in the late 90's and the repair (by Blackline in Sidney) is indistinguishable
from the 43 year old original.
Here's a boat with a bit of damage you could probably pick up inexpensively - a little work and she'll look like new.
