How to fix split between tubes and GRP hull?

Hi guys, My tubes are coming apart from the hull at the front.

The split is about 2 inches long right at the front of the GRP hull and allows the ingress of water when under way at slow speeds.



What would be the correct method to fix this? It seems like an awkward area to patch due to the compound curves.

What materials and what process?

Thanks in advance, Big Al.

As Maximus says it is a simple repair at present, your profile doesn't say where in Scotland you are, but there are a number of people in Scotland who could repair it for you.
