Hello, I would appreciate any help on how to solve this problem. I had a heavy friend on the boat (250lbs) and this was the result, see pics.

what about this:
move the ladder to the other pontoon - but first take a 2x4, the same dia of the pontoon and cut it in an arch  to fit the convex  shape of the end cap.  Make a templet with cardboard.  Maybe a strip of rubber or carpet applied to the surface between the wood and pontoon.  Fasten the wood to the ladder.

Now to cover the damage: use some matching wood to build a little shelf for a live bait tank or ice chest shelf of 4 gallon spare gastank.

Have a beer and forget about it - that's my plan of attack about this type of thingLOL

Or, Or, Or - 'same idea but use a 4x4 to cover the damaged pontoon only.  You'll need a long jig saw blade or maybe a band saw.  Make it 4" longer than necessary and drill it out for a Cup Holder. 

Round off all the corners and slap on a few coats of clear - then wait for the compliments to roll in Clap
