While pointing yesterday we noticed the deck on the port hull separating from the hull adjacent to the bridle. See pictures at https://public.me.com/davenorvell

How do I reattach the deck? What should I use for adhesive?

I'd use vinylester thickened with milled fibers. Even pressure after gluing is key, and not so much that you squeeze all of the glue out.

Surface prep is also very important. I'd rough up the flange with 80g.
