Glue question

Hi, I have a sticky question:

A little bit of rubber trim keeps coming off the fiberglass of my anchor locker. I've tired to stick it back with some bathroom sealant, but that didn't work.

(it was all I had to hand)

Can anyone recommend the proper glue to use to stick it to the edge of the locker ?

Cheers.

Automotive store carries weatherstrip cement; I suspect it's simply a contact cement of some sort. Make sure you get wax off the glass before gluing.

IMO, household silicone caulking is worthless on a boat. Doesn't hold up to water (most say not to use underwater), and doesn't stick very well anyway.

Thanks JKY, I seem to have found out the hard way about the silicon household stuff

Get rid of all the silicone residue before trying something else otherwise that won't stick either.

CT1 is excellent stuff - I use it a lot on emergency roofing and plumbing repairs. I use Tech7 for boaty stuff (Sikaflex is very hard to find here). Tech7 is available in several colours - I have used it to successfully reattach and repair keel strip so it certainly seems to be a durable product. A clean grease-free surface is important, although Tech7 will work in wet conditions.

This is what I use. Much cheaper that Sikaflex and just as good: Stixall Adhesive & Sealant 290ml Clear -
