You're talking about the rubbing strake?

Glue it back together if there's a loose flap; as far as I know, you can't really repair it to like-new without replacing it.

OTOH, that is what it's there for; Preventing damage to the tubes. Less painful way of looking at it.

You will need Polymarine 2-part PVC glue to fix.
