RIB Newbie with a leak....

Hi All, I live only a few miles from the Thames so it was inevitable that at some point I was going to use the excuse of a mid life crisis to get a boat. Which I now have.

I bought a 4m rib with trailer and Suzuki DT40 motor. The maiden voyage yesterday went well and the kids loved it however we had to turn back after 30 mins due to a slow leak.

The main waterside rubber seal between the floor and the tube has come away for about 30cms. Could anyone recommend an adhesive sealant that could stick it back down? Thanks for your help.

Thank you Jeff, I just googled Polymarine and that looks like it will do the trick!
