Most long term cruisers I know have at least some fiberglass cloth and epoxy aboard the boat....even if it is only a kit of MarineTex.
There are epoxies that will set underwater to patch holes... and MarineTex is one of them IIRC.

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.
