Sorry about your loss. That looks pretty rough. What type of boat does your neighbor have across the waterway from you? You can see it in the first pic. The smaller one with a T-Top..
Just curious, I like the lines.

The boat with the t-top is a polar 23 cc.

The boat has been given away.

"That will buff right out."
I bet it would be fun to attempt the repair on that type of damage. I've seen many Whalers with crunched bows.
After digging out the wet foam and doing some prep, I would be tempted to make female mold with polyester resin (cheap) off a good hull and use those for the exterior. You could do it again for the inside but it will be harder to bond everything together.
Once the outer skin is right, I would use epoxy resin and chunks of foam to fill to the approximate right level(s) on top. You could dry fit the new top piece a few times and get it pretty darned close. Then back butter the top piece and stick it down. Then come back and fill any low/ high spots.
I guess you would nned to make sure the norman pin area is solid as a rock eh?
Sounds like a case of beer, a friend with no life as a helper, 300 clams in materials and two weekends.

I think the polar 23 cc is the one with the cover and Jay18 is asking about the other boat. one or two houses form the left.
With the narrowing profile towards the rear... No cover.

Looks like a Bullet, low volume, local builder, out of bussines. They mainly built a 13 ft mini raceboat. MartyD
