Question about C&C Corvette

I am looking at a C&C Corvette, and the previous owner pulled all of the "filler/ gasket" out from between the keel and the hull. What should I use to refill the gap between the keel and hull?

I was thinking thickened epoxy? or does it need to be flexible?

it should be flexible. Use Sikaflex 291 or 3M 4200. DON'T use 3M 5200!!

You might want to look into G-Flex by West Systems. From what I've heard it might fit your need pretty well. You could contact West directly and get their input.
