Hypalon seam repair tips

Has anyone here ever repaired a seam leak on a hypalon boat? I've got a leak in a seam near the floor. I'll have to peel back the doubler and the floor to get to it from the looks of things. Any tips would be appreciated.

If there is no visible delam you might want to try the inland marine sealant. It worked great on some smaller boats i had with slow leaks and looks like it would adhere easy to hypalon

You remove the valve, pour in the hole and position it where the leak is. Then quickly put the valve in, fill the chamber, ond let gravity with occasional rolling /sloshing the tube to get it to coat a wider area
