Tubes coming off

Just bought a Valiant & found that I can put my hand under the tube & out of the boat (next to the transom)!
The trim piece between the hull & the tube has come unstuck on the tube side, is this all that keeps it together ? or is the tube suppose to be stuck down to the fibreglass as well ?

What would I use to restick & best place to buy from ?

Thanks in anticipation of your replies :-)

Ooops..

Can you take it back?

Not trying to be too negative but PVC tubes and things coming unstuck aren't good news at all. Where one thing lets go, others tend to be close behind.

if it is hypallon neoprene NEEDS glue two special ingredients for this cloth, rub well the surfaces that were the glue sticking tape for not to get the rest, after cleaning well spend an acetone to not dirty! Passes the glue two ingredients once and wait at least 2 to 3 hours until you pass and the second hand. after it is completely dry with the help of some friends stick one surface over the other at points which has put the glue. finish what was

If the rib is a Valiant (with original Valiant tubes) then it can only have either PU or PVC tubes. The tubes are most likley PVC. I think you would be best getting the services of a tubing profressional. Do not dispair as PVC tubes can be repaired but I believe it is not that easy to do.

The entire tube should be rebonded to the hull, probably...
