Maybe this is part of the reason my top speed isn't what it should be? Is this a big deal? Should I repair it? Is it something I can do myself or do I need to have a professional do it?

    You can easily fix that yourself. Tip: use regular masking tape to tape off the perimeter of the damaged area right up close to the edge. Then mask around that perimeter with more rows of tape. The idea is to keep the fiberglass resin or whatever repair material that you use off the hull except for right at the damaged area. This will save you lots of time sanding it off of areas you don't want it on. When you do start sanding, sand the repair until the surface of the tape is exposed. Don't sand through the tape, and don't peel the tape until your done. If you don't tape it, you'll turn a little spot into a big ugly mess, and work hard in the process.
    I just did my ultra and sea doo hulls using regular fiberglass resin and chopped strand mat cut into tiny bits with scissors. I happened to have the resin and the mat already in the garage, so I made due with that. That was for the impact damage.
