J24 keel damage - run aground

I've been looking to get back into the sailing world after recently selling my North American 23 and this local J24 ad caught my eye as it was one I had seen out on our local reservoir. It's a very attractive boat with an excellent paint job and has been gone over in the last three years and outfitted with many expensive upgrades. The price is right as of right now and it comes with a trailer but there is one caveat.. The keel hit something submerged and when striking the submerged object, the keel flexed back. So there was fiberglass damaged on the hull just forward of the keel. Inside, the fiberglass was damaged aft of the keel. My question is does anyone have any idea as to the extent of repairs needed to get this boat back into action? Thank you in advance for any and all help you may be able to provide
