I have seen a bunch of great ideas here. I would go along with the two part epoxies made for patching gas tanks, etc. It cures fast and is impervious to liquids. Walmart carries it.

JB Weld makes a product specifically to repair tanks and pipes. It's called "JB Water Weld". It cures over wet surfaces and even underwater. Great stuff!!!
