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.
