It looks like one that was on ebay a few months ago, very strange problem.

Just to confirm your boat is PVC, not hypalon.

I would put a large oversize patch on the damaged area, it might not hide the problem completely, but it will be safe to use.

Oh right I see I've been researching on the internet and I thought it was hypalon? Would I need to cut the rubber what is bulging away to mke it flat?

PVC delamination. That's only likely to get worse. Needs to be patched on the inside. Patch on the outside won't solve the underlying problem. Sorry.

Oh right I see it's not sounding good then. So the boats PVC then. Does anyone know what it's caused from? Also is this a job that can be done with someone with little knowledge?

It looks like hypalon to me due to the visible weave under the skin but it is delamination, for some reason, quite unusual IMHO .. other tube guys will be better qualified to comment than me

Anything is possible. Right glue, right temperatures, right preparation. Cutting out the effected area is a job and a half. Ideally you want to open an existing seam to gain entry. Even with the tube open it may not be instantly obvious as what to patch. The delaminated PVC can't be repaired, but you could patch the outside to effectively hide the section, only if you patch the inside too. Might look a bit industrial, but tread-grip wear patches could work on the outside. You'll need to mask external tube work to keep gluing neat and tidy.

The Zodiac is built using thermo bonding. The only glued sections are the transom, some overlapping tube sections and the attaching of the rubbing strake.

Get a quote for the work to be professionally done. That'll give you a ballpark figure so you can decide how to proceed.
