It seems that the majority of the cost is for the haulout and dry storage - the repair itself sounds like it would be well under $500. So one option might be to pocket the $500 (and/or whatever you can get from the other guy's insurance, which you should definitely pursue), live with the cosmetic damage for awhile, and wait until the next seasonal haulout to make the repairs. Only you can make the decision whether this is tolerable. But if the gelcoat on your transom is pretty oxidized anyway, it might be more reasonable to wait and integrate this repair into a more comprehensive restoration, since you will need to do that anyway to make the repair match the rest of your scoop.
