I would cover the damaged area on the inside with a thin layer of Aquaseal and Cotol, then apply a patch of CF200 or TLS350 material on top (the latter might be better as it's more flexible but still pretty tough). Put a weight on top until the glue dries (put Saranwrap on the weight so it doesn't stick to the repair).

Lastly, I'd apply a bead of Aquaseal all around the edge of the patch (or even completely cover the patch with Aquaseal).

I'd imagine that fix would be as tough or tougher than the original material.

However, if Brian's going to sell the suit it might be worthwhile sending it out so he can assure the buyer that it was "professionally repaired," and perhaps get a better price. If that's the case, send it to Mark at Superior (www.drysuitrepair.com) Top quality work at reasonable rates.
