Same "boat". I used silicon sealant and filled once. (this is our spare bag) and we don't fill it totally full, and the valve like that I made the top so it doesn't have as much weight on it all the time.

Berg, try one of these, with that glue, straight or 90 should certainly be worth a try. I added a vent to my two port center bag a few years back and it worked well.

Problem is the port itself that is heat seated to the bag actually ripped. So I doubt any amount of gluing I would do would hold too long.
Just ripped the whole thing out last night and put in a 90* flow rite 1-1/8" bulkhead style fitting (looks like a thru hull). Then swapped the fitting on the hose to a straight flow rite 1-1/8" quick connect so I can still get the bag out easy. Gooped it with 5200 and cranked it all down tight. It "looks good" but who knows if it will hold.
(gouged it up a bit with a channel lock - only thing I had that was big enough for that nut!)
I read that the 5200 takes 7 days to fully cure (urgh) but this repair is only going to be about 36 hours old before it gets put to the test. Crossing fingers....Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.
