Regluing dinghy rubrail

The rub rail on our hyperlon dinghy has become unglued over most of its length. What would anyone recommend as an adhesive to reattach it?

Thanks,

Bob

A reputable dinghy repair shop. Cleaning and prep is extremely important and a real pain.

From some of the work I have seen done in this area, reputable and repair shop seldom go together. I generally do my own work, that way if it's screwed up I have an excuse, no skill or experience.

Thanks for the response, it may come to that. Maybe cheaper to buy another dinghy.
