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!!

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

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.
