Also look inside the bilge on top of where the strut mounts for fiberglass or stringer/ support cracks.

Be sure to fully test drive the boat to check for vibrations at a variety of speeds. The impact on a prop could have also bent the prop shaft. A bent shaft can cause a noticible vibration when driving. The tolerances on the prop shaft are very narrow and only a very slight bend can be straightened, otherwise replaced. The shaft can be guaged for trueness while still in the boat at a good marina. Hope that there is no issues with the shaft $$$
