bonding silicone

I need to repair my raymarine st 2000+ keypad. the problem is there is a tiny hole between the silicone pad and the underside of the case where water leaks in.

Do you know of any products that will bond or seal silicone to plastic?

Butyl rubber tape might do the trick. I recently repaired an autopilot control head that had water getting into it from the case warping using the stuff..

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

The silicone backing tape is probably quite a different composition from the silicone of the keypad.
