I need to reglue (rubber) hatch gaskets to the polyethylene hull on a Perception Prizm and am wondering what kind of glue to use.

I use a hot glue gun. This seems to work really well.

I used CA to re-glue hatch gaskets and it's held up for two years so far.

5200 seems to have done it I tried RTV silicone first and it came right off.

5200 will hold anything..... but don't figure on ever removing what's been glued. The stuff is permanent.
How's the sailboat project coming? :)
