good patch overlap recommendations??

Hey, I am ordering some .032 aluminum for patching holes on our trailer (60-TW), and am thinking of about an inch around the hole for overlap, enough for rivet and some vulkem.
Any thoughts on this amount of overlap and other tips ?

That should be fine unless it's a large hole. If it's large I run some bracing behind the patch for stiffness.
