Blown out RHI glue



I know it's not a sailboat... but some of you sailors must have had rhib problems at some point right?

Boat: 12' center console Aquapro RHIB
Motor: 25hp honda 4 stroke
Year: 2001
Construction: PVC tubes, Aluminum Hull
Problem: Glue failure at transom-tube joints

Stbd-


Port-


I bought it used for cheap a couple years ago and have had lots of fun with it, should I:

a. Try to clean that glue off (googone??) and reglue with "Colle Klebstoff Glue - Groupe ZODIAC 2"?

b. Try to get it professionally redone (I'm cheap tho...)?

c. Pull the Honda off the back and try to put it on a little whaler or similar (tough retrofit...lots of $$$)?

all input appreciated. I'm going back to scrubbing the deck on the real boat....

Thanks!
