no problem, it was the front edge, since is where the force if the water is greatest if you have internal leading edge then fine, mine had and internal patch as well as a external patch and was done by the professionals and still failed, they told me at the time it might fail before they did the job, it was august and I wanted boat in water so I got it fixed...

hopefully your boat will last longer than I got out if mine!

But keep checking that seam.

Plastic mudguards are a complete nightmare. I cracked one recently whils moving the boat on the beach. No damage to the boat thank god. Will be replacing mine over the winter with 2 half tyres of a suitable diameter. They should stand the usual wear and tear.
