Thanks everyone for your ideas, I'll post a pic when it's all said and done. If our 'protected' waters were protected from speedboats that didn't make serious wakes 20 yards (or less) away, I would consider just leaving it... I have also seen 30kt winds come out of nowhere on the river though - I can't entirely ignore the hole in the deck.
We are in DC, at the Washington Marina (not to be mistaken for the sailing marina, where the waiting list is years long) at the top of the DC channel. No cameras here, and the marina manager and I looked at all possible offenders and couldn't find a clue. It seems very common here to buy a 'stinkboat' one day and act like you own the waters the next, horrid behavior everywhere. The worst offender is "SeaDog" a huge speedboat 'tour' boat that has come close to swamping several local sailors.
