Pvc dinghy transom repair help please

Hi I need to repair a tear in the pvc on my inflatable dinghy.
The tear is at the bottom of the transom where the transom meets the bottom of the hull just below the drain bung.

I am not sure how best to go about this repair any help would be great.

I also have 3 puncture repairs on the tubes and some pin holes in the floor.Click image for larger version

PVC patch, matching colour if you can should not be a problem. Two part PVC glue, follow the instructions.
Square/rectangle in shape with the corners removed to the shape of a 10p. Remove drain plug, have the patch start from the PVC line above the plug with the same amount of patch folding under the transom.
Once glued in place cut out the plug hole and replace drain.
Bit cold in this weather so you will need some where warm to do it.

Hope this helps.
