Tube repair - tissue?

Arghhh! Had to leave the boat against a pontoon overnight instead of on her drive on dock as the wind made it impossible to drive on, turned out this morning and one of the knots on one of the fenders has worn through the outer layer of the tube, about 1cm length of damage,


It hasn't damaged the tube itself so to my mind (I may be wrong) the repair is purely aesthetic. what is the easiest way to do it, do self adhesive white patches exist or do I need to do a full on hypalon tube repair with the sanding/patch/glue etc etc.


My tubes seem to be a thin white layer over a solid blue inner.


Kicking myself!

tear aid

this is the first time i did it in the cold when it heated up in summer it produced a bubble, so warmed it up first second time, it looks bigger than it is to be honest, not got a pic of second time

Best bet long term is a proper hypalon patch.
