Cruzan, welcome. 2402 is the correct adhesive but do a search, there is plenty of info to be found.

hey there jwalker i looked around and found a technical data sheet on 2402, but it did not list fiberglass as one of the materials that it can be used on, do you have any experience using it ??

Yep, a bit surprisingly, it works fine on fibreglass. Good preparation, cleanliness (not even fingerprints), and dry conditions. 3 coats of adhesive. Some say 2 will do but I feel 3 is better. Bring the surfaces together without air bubbles and roll them really hard. Even use a rubber or soft wood mallet. Don't nip the hypalon over corners though.

I glued some hypalon 'D' ring patches to the inside of my hull for lashing points. They are really firm. Good preparation as above, clean the grease off with the thinners/solvent stuff the glue suppliers have (I used Polymarine). Easy
