No, to repair you would actually need to repair the problem area. Best way due to size allowing is flip it over on dry ground and locate the area which you should find damage or a crack, if not it is most likely a drain plug/fitting or anything mounted to/through the hull. Another way is to set it on top of something that can support the weight and fill with water, when and where the water comes out can be traced to the source of the problem, sometimes it helps to dye the water.
Thank you!
