Sorry to hear of your problem.

I had a similar problem on the inside of my rear port sponson a couple of years ago. The cut (nice and straight) was about 4 inches long. As others have advised I patched the inside first (this is mainly to help hold the sides of the cut together so doesn't have to be totally air tight) then patch properly on the outside.

Two years later and it is still sound.

All the best with the reapir.

My tubes were slashed also this summer couple of slashes on both sides of the bow, they're in for estimate/repair right now, hopefully not too much.
Wish I knew who did it... I got a big fishing knife myself...
