Star Raft Vandalized

I had a Star Raft stabbed with a Knife over the weekend. Unfortunately, the dbag punctured it 1/8" away from the rib on the hull. (It has the thick rubber with approx. 8 ribs on the bottom of the tubes). The cut is only 3/8". Do any of you guys have any idea how to fix this? My concern is there isn't enough room between the ribs for a good bond.

Sorry to hear about your vandalism.

You can use a heat gun / hair drier to loosen the bottom chafe strip. Pull that back as far as needed to do the repair under it and then glue it back down when you have the patch on.

Good luck wit your patch.
