Seam repair?

Hi All,

Just noticed that the seam between the ponton and the glasfiber hull on our RIB has lost its hold on approx 1,5m length.

How difficult is this to repair? And is this something I can do myself or would it be better left for the pros?

From what I can see that is the underneath strip that has come lose from the fibreglass ... Should be an easy repair and a simple case of re gluing... But I would dry the area then sand both the fibre glass and strip then prime both surfaces and leave to dry.. Then re glue and preposition and use a some force - like a hand roller to set in place.. I would be sure that you will need PVC glue..
