Seam help

So both the port and starboard tubes have the seen tape lifting on the same section. I haven't fully removed the tape yet in fear of causing damage so I'm not sure what it looks like. Should I go ahead and remove the rub strake and then proceed to remove the tape, then clean and reapply tape? Or should I apply something more substrantial (wider)?

hello, I have a avon sr 5.4 and my seams were doing the exact same thing. I asked a local shop about it. I was afraid just like you that it was going to open up but was told not to worry. the piece that you are showing i was told there wasnt anything to worry about. it is there more to cover the real seem. what i did was clean them and glue them back on. looks like you could pull it off but then it would then expose the seam. Im assuming that this would be consider searider bling...

Excellent. This is what I was thinking after further inspecting. Thanks for the response!

The seams would have at least one inch overlap anyway with a strip then behind it inside the tube - Just a case of clean up and re-glue using P.V.C ...
