Bruce, that is a critical area. If the hypalon joining strip fails, you've got the start of a tear which will allow the tubes to part from the hull. It needs new hypalon over the damage followed by a considerably larger piece over the top of the first one and then the snubbing strake taken down as far as you could possibly envisage damage occuring. The additional snubber could be joined to the present section by undercutting the end of the present piece so that the new piece fits into that undercut. With good work, the joint could be pretty sound.
It frequently surprises me how little boatbuilders appear to know, or bother to acknowledge, about the actual usage of a rib. Consols are an area where I'm constantly surprised by poor design. IMHO, as usual, of course.
Edit: I've just had a peak at your pic in full size. It looks to me as though there are air pockets trapped in the hypalon overlaps.
You might like to get them to do this properly too.
Oops, I think I might be in trouble now.
