Nice boat.
It's called, "rotational force." The plates, spread the load. Also, the drilled holes, should be chamfered. You can buy a special bit, or use a slightly larger bit, running slowly...backwards.

Just an FYI, for others.

Looks like, you have skills.

One of the, Great all time boats.

Chamfered holes

I used a new 1/2 inch drill bit turned gently and lightly by hand clockwise to chamfer the holes that I drilled out in stages from 1/8th inch to prevent cracks that can run, learned that the hard way long ago. I've used a phillips head screwdriver bit in the past, but the new drill bit makes a real clean cut.

Value of the boat is the fun and memories it will produce. So since they wakeboard, Id say the value went up significantly.

I would "glass" in the backing plates from the underside. Buy a fiberglass repair kit and glass in those plates and as far around it as you can. Fiberglass is easy if it doesn't have to be pretty.

That boat value did not drop a cent in fact I'm sure it increased. It won't appreciably effect the wake and opens up a whole new venue of potential buyers should he ever choose to sell it
