Tricky

Thats going to be a hard fix and I think you are going to have to fix it with an inner patch first, but you must also make the hole round so that the split doesn't creep (Thanks Tonka, see I do Listen!) and you need to get a 10p piece and cut around it with a sharp blade, going no Closer to the seam. You also need to use the proper 2 part glue available from IBS.

do you have any patch material?

I havent got any patch material yet as im not 100% what it is as its duratex which i think is pvc.
Silly question but once the hole is made round how would you get to the inside to patch it.Is it a case of peeling the seem back and repiring the hole then reglue the seem.

theres a couple of ways and if you call me on 07859886431 I'll explain I' be reluctant to go and spilit the seam without much repair experience. . I think the material is PVCU and I'm fairly certain you can repair it with that but if you give these people a ring they can advise you on repair material

we might have some red here I'll have a look in the morning

If it were my boat, I would just put a patch on the outside. Carefully using heat to remove a little of the black floor material below the hole and not removing anything near the thermo welded seam. Then patch it and resolve whatever it was that made the hole in the first place. If that didn't work then remove the patch and start over, although I doubt it necessary. It just doesn't look like that serious of a repair.
