advice needed

hello all,I have a rib that appears to be shedding its tube.The tube is separating from the side of the transom.I presume the tube should be glued to the fibreglass at this location ?.The tubes are hypalon.Rib is a jokerboat.If the tubes are deflated there is no evidence of them being glued to side of transom.Can someone suggest a product to glue these,I was thinking of 3m 5200fc or Bostik 2402.See attached pics.Thanks in advance for all help and suggestions.

These shots are from behind the rib.The area of concern is the gap that is visable along the topside of tube where it is adjacent to the side of transom photo 4 + 5.This gap is greater on the starboard side.The brown "stain" that is visable appears to be only the glue that holds the cosmetic bead that hides the joint between the tube and the transom side.

I have no experience of the boats design, however it looks to me like it never was and possibly never designed to be attached at that point. As long as the rear vertical section is sealed, which it looks like it is, water isnt going to get in from the sea etc.
