Welcome to Bunnings Workshop. There are always factors to consider for long curing times such as temperature, humidity and sunlight. Too much or lack of these elements causes unpredictable drying times. You could artificially hurry up the process by using a fan or heat gun but it would only dry the surface and it would still be soft at the bottom. To prevent accidental water from entering your pond I suggest covering it with a tarp, make sure it does not touch the pond sealer. In these instances if it still feels too soft to the touch you may have to wait a few more days with good sunlight until the sealer cures to full strength. At the back of the can are instructions for moisture cure test. You can give that a go to test if it's cured. If there is anything else we can help you with please post it here on workshop.

Crommelin has a fantastic technical advice line, and I've always received amazing help, and my questions have been answered promptly. I'll make contact with them after the weekend to enquire about your issue.
How's the area looking now, and has it cured at all? After speaking with Crommelin, they've suggested that the area will probably just take longer to dry. As long as the area isn't flaking or bubbling, it will be fine. If it doesn't cure or starts bubbling, you can cut the affected area out with a Stanley knife and peel it away. Ensure you dry the area thoroughly and apply two fresh coats of sealer over the cutout section.
Please let us know how you go or if you have more questions.
