Recommendation for patching urethane boat

I have a nrs bandit with a small snag that is leaking. I know that the boat fabric is urethane coated, and I have never patched a urethane boat before. Does anybody know what glue and fabric is recommended for this type of job? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

You can patch it with PVC if you don't have urethane. I'd use Stabond for glue. Sand the urethane, MEK it and glue. The PVC can just be MEK wiped then glued.

Send it back to NRS and they will weld a patch on on it. Permanent and Strongest patch you can get.
