If any boat can take it - it's the A30 and by today's standards of
boatbuilding, it's one boat that is worth repairing after a storm.

The A30 is a tough boat, so don't give up hope. They're also quite
repairable. Even something like a split hull/deck joint isn't all that
bad. If the boat's integrity is compromised in such a way, though, have
them pull off the engine intake hose and open the seacock so the boat
can't fill up with water.
