Water in hull of bass tender pro

Find the leak and patch it. Use a good marine epoxy system with a sheet or two of fiberglass cloth laid-across the crack. Be sure to sandpaper the area thoroughly with rough paper. If you can't find a leak or crack, fill the hull with water and inspect for leak. Repair after.

Repair of small crack/cut in the hull bottom...3 " long..1/64" or less wide...

It depends on the material of the hull. If it is Fiberglass then buy a small auto or boat repair fibreglass kit and follow instructions in the kit.
. If it is one of the engineering thermoplastics like High density Polyethylene ABS or Polypropylene I would try and find somone who can weld it with the appropriate material. This would be done by carefully shaping the plastic away from the crack to form a "V" shaped recess and then filling the gap with the appropriate filler rod usually using a hot air blower designed for the job.

Can hear water in the hull; is there a quick drain and where is the most likely area it is leaking from, is there a kit? model H27.

in the nose of the boat right next to the handle theres a funny looking switch if you stand the boat on its nose and flip the switch it will let the water out. my personal opinion it keeps the hull a little lower to the water and the paddles deeper...
