Transom repair to Seamaster (Zodiac)

I have a Yamaha Seamaster 320 dinghy(2 years old) which I believe is manufactured byZodiac The wooden painted transom is separating from the tubes. The joint seems to be rubber(neoprene ?) to painted wood. What is the correct adhesive to use. The boat only came with pvc to pvc adhesive which has not worked

regards

Zodiac Universal Glue should work. Make sure you prep the fabric correctly. Wouldn't hurt to prep the wood as well.

You do want to make sure that any wood that has been exposed is sealed up, or you'll develop a rot problem down the road.
