Prosport Rib Repair

The rubbing strake on my 7.5m Prosport is coming away from the tubes. About a foot has come lose from the back cone where the strake starts.

My question is what glue should I use on this repair? The job looks no more difficult than cleaning and drying the area and then applying the correct glue.

Are Prossports made from PVC or Hypalon?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Mark
If you want it to stay affixed I would suggest you degrease and roughen up both surfaces before glueing. There are loads of threads on here providing best guidance on hypalon repairs and are well worth a look before you start. Good luck.
