Correct glue

Unfortunately I've managed to put a tiny hole in my quicksilver 3.4 SIB. Can anyone advise the best glue to use for the repair. I've got the original patches that came with the boat but no glue. Not sure what year it is exactly ( cream coloured material if that helps with yellow plastic graphics )
The damage was caused sliding it down a mud river bank, but I'm surprised it holed that easily.

Did mine last week. Mine is PVC - 99% sure your's (the older version) is too. They are very light and cut, rip, abrade very easily.

You need PVC two part glue and some MEK cleaner from these guys:
Glues and solvents for Ribs and inflatabe boats

They have good instructions on the site - follow them. If you don't, it won't be a pukka repair.

Hmmm, I just checked - and I don't see it. Not to worry - these guys give similar advice:
