Raft Repair on Hypalon without any more plastic left

Hope someone can help me on this one.

I've made enough repairs on my used raft to know how to properly make good, lasting patches on normal Hypalon. Tears, pinholes etc etc. I've replaced the Hypalon and the Adhesive in the NRS raft repair kit twice now. All of this to say, I know how to make "normal" patches ok.

I've now run into an issue where I need to put a patch under one of the tubes, above the floor, where the tube and the floor meet. This would be towards the front of the boat right where it kicks up. Because this is a high wear area and the boat hasn't always been dried out well before storage, the plastic/rubber part of the hypalon doesn't exist anymore. Because of the way the floor seam is I don't have anywhere else to glue the patch onto.

My question is: "Can I glue a new patch over the hole and onto this rubberless hypalon section and have it hold well?"

I'm well aware that this boat is on it's last legs, but I'd like to hold out buying a new one till the next tax rebate.
