I doubt very much if you would find anyone to repair it " on site" it's a workshop job. It would help if we knew where you were.

Hi mate

Well to start at no cost mix up some fairy liquid & water and go all over the boat including the valves pressure relief as well as inflation you say it stops up for a week is that all compartments? depending on how you blew it up you could have one compartment affecting others or you could have the baffles leaking which means two or more compartments are now one.
But first do all the boat and report back it might just be the valves need an overhaul.

Cheers
