Will possibly see conflicting opinions, but it wouldn't scare me away from the boat. With proper repair it can be about as strong as new.
You need to carefully check the surrounding area, and any other scuffs that you find. Make sure there is no hidden delamination.
Take a hand saw (drywall/keyhole type) or tin snips, or router and cut the overlapping sections, then grind back for your 12:1 and repair it like any other patch. Make sure you get any delaminated areas out, much better to do new than to try to fix delamination.
