Tears in floor

I hope someone can help I recently stupidly tried to get my tender back to shore just before low water and did not remember to lift my transom wheels resulting in me getting stuck about 15 m from the shoreline after I managed to get the wheels up I managed to pull it across the mud but must of dragged it across some stones which resulted in 2 tears about 1 foot long what can I use to repair it
Cheers David

Pics will help. Presuming not an airfloor so this is just the outer skin? You could patch inside and out but if a nice clean tear and non pressure bearing then one side should be ok.

Have a look at this thread where I started as a novice and ended up with some very sound repairs after advice from Max and others...

Aerotec patching/glue advice.

Agree with Max on a tender floor one side should be fine... but a foot is a long split so I might be inclined to go for in & out in this case. As long as you use two part glue I think it will hold.

My DIY efforts have survived crashing at speed through a chop... somewhat to my surprise!
