vx delux hull repair

There are a lot of superficial scratches on the bottom of this 2005 VX Delux. I'm talking about the big scrape that has actually gotten into the fibers of the hull.

I hit a water intake grate. It left this scrape the length of the hull near the keel. While the scrape is deep enough to show some fibers, the scrape never goes through the entire thickness of the hull.

How would you go about repairing this? How thick is the hull?
