Cover to repair

I have a Ribeye cover which I want to keep as a spare that was recently torn, about an 18inch tear. I have some similar material that was the cover bag, If I cut and oversize piece, what glue should I use?

Agree with that Brian, no labels that I can find that give material, it has a feeling of a plastic outer surface with a lightweight hessian woven feel inside, I have an old bag it came in and no label but same material. Supplied as a Ribeye product, no other ideas to help

Should have checked website instead of fighting a wet cover
"Fabricated from a coated polyester fabric and has superb UV resistance and impermeability .Provides protection from the elements while the boat is on a mooring or being towed. The cover is very easy to put on in situ on the water. Available for all models. "

Cheers Brian I use then usually, was being tight as someone else damaged it and has replaced it so old one would be good for spare or on loan etc, might still drop it to local guys and pay

Sounds very much like the same material that banner makers use.
there stitched and joined with some sort of double edged tape.
