    Others trying to answer your question will want to know the size and location of the hole and which layer it is in. Photos would be helpful.

    Yep, where the hole is will mater but the short answer is it shouldn't be a problem. You can probably patch it with some duct tape for a short term fix. One time I forgot I still had tarp stakes in my back pocket and sat down in my blackbirdl. I put a dime sized hole through both layers and patched it with tyvek tape. I put a 2x2 piece of tape on each side of the hole for both layers and that was over a year ago. My BB is still going strong.

    You should be alright. You might want to use Tenacious Tape for a quicky fix.

    I have a hole, about dime size in my Grand Trunk. I did it with a key about 4 months ago. I still use it to see how much it spreads. Not much. It went from key hole to dime in about a week, no change since then, pun intended.
