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.
