Glueing in an inflatable keel

Hi All,
I pulled out the inflatable keel on my old Zodiac Mk2 to make a repair on the seam. That keel is now repaired and I want to glue it back in.

I was wondering if hypalon glue should be used to glue it back in to the boat or whether something like sikaflex might hold better? The whole area seems to be a magnet for grime and sand and it will be difficult to get clean enough for hypalon 2part glue.

It goes against the grain to use sikaflex but that is good glue

If the inflatable boat and keel material is hypalon, use hypalon glue. If PVC, use pvc glue. the important thing to remember is preparation. Get the preperation right and it will stick forever.
