Help re tube repair

My RIB was unfortunately damaged/punctured on the lower area of the bow tub, due to an oversize boat on the adjacent mooring - tilted props (nightmare).

Can anyone recommend a very good repair business, ideally in the the South/South East?

I really dp want to ensure the repair is handled as well as possible.

William
