Dinghy Rubrail Repair - Adheasive

Have my rubrail comming loose on my dinghy, have some contact cement for tube repairs (hypolon) but not enought for 4" rubrail 15' long (reglue both sides)

Has anyone tried using something like 5200 on hypolon material? Its a lot easier to get down here in Guatemala.

5200 would certainly work, but in my experience it is hard to keep dinghy repairs assembled durint 5200's long cure time. Sikaflex 292 or other faster cure polyurethane adhesives are easier, but still require 12-24 hours cure time with the repair held in place mechanically.
