repair seaping bombard aerotec floor

any advice on wether this can be repaired sucessfully, and how to secure a permanent air tight repair which looks good if possible
any help appreciated as i have never had to repair before thanks
2 photos( hopefully attached) its a bombard aerotec floor
alothough the photo shows a split/crack it only has pin holes that are seaping it hasnt completley gone all the way through as you can see from the bubbles in the other picture this is at the full 11psi
i purchased the boat like this i was somewhat misled to say the least!!!

that is an excellent result, and makes very interesting reading ,would like to see a video of how he actually carried out the repair over compound curve must be really fiddly but its exactly the repair i require .the result is excellent i would be over the moon with that
if you use the two part glue and dont acheive airtight seal can it be removed for a second try? or r u boll-xed
,i see humidity and temp play a big part i have an outdoor building which is ideal for this repair which has a weather station in which displays temp humidity etc
any advice on the actuall technipue of getting nashers result would be appreciated

I'll PM you a number and you can call me if you want to run through it in more detail.

I'm Tiling/putting in new bathroom suite all weekend so it will be a welcome distraction

the repair has now sat for 48hours in temp and humidity controlled room ,
read conflicting informationon curing time, some saying its ready to pressure test after 48hrs others saying it takes a full 7 days for the bond to reach full strength, is this right?
is it worth waiting 7 days? are there advanteges or not? thanks.

patience has never been my strong point LOL
