Small hole

Folks
I have a very small pin hole in my bow tube (hypalon) any best way to tackle it is about a mm if that. I dont think I can use that new miracle 'goo' in a tube on hypalon, so I think all I can do is glue a new piece on the outside only. Any ideas would be appreciated.
ta
Cheers
J

Where abouts on the bow tube is it? Just so you can do the neatest job rather than a circular patch.

Hi chewy it is about 3 ins from middle and about right on the bend of the tube, If you were looking at my bow roller it would be at 3 o'clock

what colour is your toob and have you got any material. I'm going to Paul Tilleys this afters and I might be able to scrounge a bit for you. It's no big deal to fix the prep instructions are here it's the same principle bu you don't have to leave the strake indoros overnight.

Small circular patch it is then. If you don't get any material off Stu I'm sure someone on here might have some lying around for the price of postage...

I've used these before, if you can put a matching one opposite it may not look like a repair.
