Sorry I can't help you there but did you run into a log in the CT river? I know I got a few scratches from running into drifting debris last Sunday.

toilet plunger? Laughing if you can access the inside of the hull I would imagine that you should be able to pound it out, just do it with a block of wood so you don't end up with reverse dents. Then again, I am NOT the Dent wizard, therefore, don't pay any attention to me

Plunger or if you know someone at a body shop they have nice plunger type tools that they use for pulling dents... They work like a charm!

Well id say use a block of wood place it on the dent the use a hammer and hit the piece of wood forcing it to push the metal and watch the dent make sure you dont push it too far out you want it just right if you go too far you have to go on the other side
