tube coming away from boat at stern

Hi
Looking for some advice please. Hopefully the picture describes the problem. The tear is about 5 inches long. I'm assuming / hoping that it should be posible to attach a patch to the tube and solid bit (not sure what to call this part of the boat!) and glue it all together.
Any advice very gratefully received.
Thanks
Neil

Hi; I know it has been a while since your last post but was wondering if your solution worked. I just got myself a YAM480R which I traded for a weeks work on a delivery to St. Thomas of the superyacht it used to belong to... including recently rebuilt Yamaha 50hp ($3000 invoice)... thought I'd go for that deal... however she has the exact same issue as you describe... for the rest I love her... my first RIB!

Many thanks in advance! Peter

Hi
Yes I cut off the piece attached to the body and attached a new piece to tube and deck. Seems to have held although I noticed the other side now needs doing - will wait for slightly warmer weather!
Enjoy your new rib
Cheers
Neil
