RIB/SIB repairers - how to fix this tricky transom/tube join problem?

Pesky little area - started as a small hole and spread of course.

Not sure how to deal with this - some sort of fabric gusset over the transom/rubber molding?

Any ideas? What glue/material to adhere to the 'rubber'??

Thanks chaps!

The problem is the other side of the circled area.

I wouldnít overly worry as the plastic tube mounts are imbedded into the transom ply so itís not going to fall apart. If itís just a cosmetic repair you are after try this stuff. We use this to finish off around the rub strakes etc.

Not sure it would work though as the gap flexes and opens up in use - it was a small 5mm hole to start with that I filled with an epoxy but obviously as it flexes this loses grip with the side of the split and will just open up more and split further to the edge of the tube?

but, the mastic will be flexible, not certain it will be flexible enough, but itll certanly be more flexibe than any epoxy...
