Your insurer doesn't have any type of 24-hour service phone?
I'd try to line up a local diver to go down and check for damage, as well as local resources for hauling it out again and surveying the damage.
A lot will depend on how extensive the damage is. If the boat is repairable, there are some things that need to be done immediately after hauling in order to minmize damage, i.e. if the engine can be pickled (removed, cleaned out with fresh water, and then fully dried & lubed) right away it can probably be recovered. If allowed to sit "damp" out of water for a couple of days...it will develop extensive rust and freeze up the rings.
Then there's the USCG and environmental issues. If the USCG is in your area, and there is any oil slick or film traceable to your boat...you may want to begin mitigation with an oil boom around the hull, before they do it and charge you for it.
This is a good time to get your insurance papers out, all of them, and read them carefully to find out what is and is not covered, and what options you have. Having the boat sit where it is for another 36 hours is not going to make much difference, unless something is pounding, etc., to do more damage.
Your dockmaster may know who you can talk with locally--they've probably had storm damage and losses before.
