Welcome!

Avon boats are popular on this form...although, most on here are from the UK and like the Avon Searider.

Make a thread under the "RIBs" forum and post some pictures of the gash? A slice that side will require an inside patch and an outside patch. The overlap needs to be a minimum of 2 inches.

4 foot gash? Probably should do some stitching as well. That's a pretty big repair. Does it go through any seams or whatnot?

Oh, and by the way, welcome to the forum. I'm just over the hill and a bit south of you.

Welcome to the forum. Is it Hypalon? I have spare glue and some grey Hypalon if you wanted to do it yourself. Lets see some photos. You have lots of helpful professionals here that will get an idea of what to expect.
