Patching Pyranha S6 Swallowtail

My beloved Pyranha S6 200 is showing it's years (I think I'm the 5th owner). The stern swallow tail has been bashed against so many rocks from low-water cartwheeling that the plastic has worn a hole. I've tried patching by welding some plastic from the cockpit over the hole, which worked great last summer but, alas, the weld plastic finally wore away and I'm running out of plastic to cut from the cockpit rim.

Any suggestions on how to patch the hole? The swallow tail is a narrow little space, so maybe I could fill it with some sort of epoxy or liquid nails or whatever. The space is too narrow to jam a piece of bitchethane over. I'm just trying to limp another year out of a favorite playboat.

(other than buy a new playboat)
