Hypalon tape/strip from tubes to hull

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, as per title, the hypalon strip that joins the tubes to the hull on our old Northcraft are starting to come away from the hull.
Our trip back from the IOM on Sunday was a wet one as a result!!!
Should I repair or replace the whole strip and what is the best way to go about it? DIY job or leave to the professionals?

Tried but canít seem to upload a pic??

Best way would be to replace the the whole strip if fitted in sections... But would require a good clean up and sanding... Leave to the professionals....
If its not that bad a D.I.Y can be done.. Some pictures if you can ..
Hypalon will need Bostik 2402 glue with hardener and Bostik M501 thinners to clean ....

Cheers, Iíve had someone look at it, as the issue is confined to a few small areas and only on the hull side of things, he has advised to trim the old tape back a little all the way round and prep the hull and remaining tape, then add a larger strip to overlap the join to the hull. Iím ordering hypalon from Ribstore, so hopefully get it sorted at the weekend!
