One way to patch polyethylene tanks that is a bit off the beaten path is the "candles" that they use to patch alpine ski bottoms. The bottom surface on alpine skis used to be a form of polyethylene or similar plastic... and we used to fill the gouges using a "candle" that was made of plastic and wax combined, and dripped the plastic into the surface and then filed the repair flat. I don't know if they still make the patching sticks, but if they do, they might be worth a shot.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
