Temporary? Black duct tape. Longer? Stitch it up with fishing line and a needle. Permanent, take the top to a boating top shop who can do a nearly unnoticeable repair to the fabric.

Getting Savvy...

When you have a choice, buy American.

I'm going to try iron on patches for now. The fabric part seems to be holding nicely. The plastic window part not so well. I might just use my seeing machine to hold the plastic to the patch w/ some duct tape. Not to concerned with the look right now and flapping in the wind is just going to make it worse.
