Good size patch and repair, congrats, next time keep anchor forlded inside a proper bag or hang it from middle bow rope tie if your sib has one and forget all about anchor junping and injuring top air floor.

Would be advisable with a metal file, file round both anchor points and all folding, non folding parts to be smooth to touch. Will avoid fabric cuts, abrassions, etc.

Happy Sibbing

Thanks, It goes in a heavy canvas bag, then strapped to the center seat. Don't know why I didn't stow it that day.....I'm sure it was my wife's fault!

BTW Patch has held 100% perfectly well since repair.

Hi all, the repair is impossible to effect internally, follow the normal repair methods for PVC fabrics. The patch should ideally be 1.5 " larger than the damage in all directions for adidtional strength, the vital thing to observe is the MAXIMUM humidity can not exceed 60 %.
Alternatively consult a pro for a repair, although they cost money it can save you more if you get it wrong.
Good luck
