    Shop around if possible or just counter at say 575-600. When you said small hole and a crack, thought a little smaller. Is the area soft to where it can be pushed in?

    Maybe a fiberglass repair kit from your favorite auto parts store?

    I'd buy a small sheet of fiberglass and a small container of resin and hardener. or just get a ton of body filler (i like evercoat) and make a quick patch.
    If you want to do either of these you can PM and i'll walk you through the steps, i just finished working on mine and the damage was about the same size.

    And a quick tip, jet skis are usually cheaper in the fall when everyones trying to get rid of them vs. the spring when everyone wants to buy them

    If soft. Then you have a bit of damage. I would shop around or nego the price down if you can't do it yourself. Try West Marine for the supplies you will need of you try.
