How old is this boat?

The sleeves are molded into the hull and have some structure to grip the plastic. Perhaps gluing would be possible. I'd try West systems G-Flex.

Interesting, did this happen as a result of "normal" use or was there an accident of some kind.

If normal use, do you sail in heavy air and waves a lot?

The G-flex is described as excellent for Polyurethane applications. West Systems is available at Marine stores. Try West Marine?
