Would you accept a new car with ready made dents? Why should a boat be any different? If the price was based on "as is" condition, then the dealer should have pointed out the deformity.
Personally, I would be very skeptical about the quality of any boat that deforms by just sitting there. Two of my boats that I have had for many years are polyethylene and neither has changed shape, dented, oil-canned, warped, or even faded.
If I were you, I would take the boat back to the dealer and get a new boat, but probably not of the same brand.
