Avon searider sealing compund

Hi there , my name is Mike and I am new to this RIP Net.
I am 46 Y old and living in Stuttgart / Germany.
My first Rib is a Zodiac Pro 7 with a Mariner 40HP.
Now i was fallen in love with a Avon searider 5,4 that i picked up last friday in Italy.
So far,my question is if anybody knows the sealing compound that was used for sealing the seam outside? I think the original glue is Bostik 2404 .

Greetings from Germany
Mike

it should be Bostik 2402.
But you could use NE486, or NE662, or 113M as well

Mike;

Not sure, but I think what you're seeing is tape applied to the edges of the seam. Adds another layer of glued material. It's not a tape as in self-adhesive tape, but is a narrow strip of fabric glued over the seam.

Looks to me like the inpressions of the baffle on the side of the tube...

Hi, it is all arround the outer seam. They are covered with this compound.
The inner seams are normaly glued and not sealed.

Hi , i`pick up a better picture tomorrow.

But it is a sealing compound in grey, thats over the seam on the outside.
My first profession was carbody work and i see that it is sealed and lightly
worked with a small brush.
