5m humber inflatable with large hole

Hi I bought a 5m humber off ebay everything is in one piece only thing wrong is a bit of oxidisation on the tubes and the floor boards need re varnishing I am very happy with it included in the sale was an identical Sib complete with boards but this one has a large hole on the rear of one of the tubes where the leafield a7 valve should be the hole is about 250mm in diameter I've been quoted 330 to repair it just wondering if it would be a very difficult job to do I am presuming it would need a patch on the inside first then a patch on the outside then a new valve fitting I all ready have the material and glue just have to buy a new valve i do have some pictures but not sure how to add them any advice would be much appretiated

Thanks Colin

330 sounds way over the top, your description suggests a <100 repair.

I can advise further if you can post the pictures (sorry don't know how to myself) or email them to me

We are based in Chorley close to M61 J8, you are welcome to bring it in for advice or repair.
