Popped a chamber on my Dragonfly: any option or recourse?

Like a dummy one day I overinflated and thus popped a chamber. Here are photos of the damage:

It still is useable even with that popped chamber. What options or recourse do I have for repair or replacement?

Thanks.

Basically, it is un-repairable. It would need to be replaced.

How easily did it "overinflate"? Did you do it with a pump? Or did you leave it in the sun?

I read some old messages here and JCOOLEY mentioned that it was quite difficult to overinflate the main tubes (I have a Convertible). I haven't thought much about overinflation, based on that comment.

I use a Backbone - so it seems that inflation is less "picky", since it is quite rigid at most pressures.

I may need to pay more attention - I don't want to blow a tube!
