Adhesive for bonding rubber mat to swim platform fiberglass

Recommended Posts

On my 2006 VLX, the rubber mat on the swimstep platform is separating from the fiberglass.  It's curling up on all the edges and corners.  Can anyone suggest a good adhesive to bond the rubber and fiberglass back together?

My suggestion is to use the adhesive that comes already on the back of a new Gatorstep mat!!!  I did mine 2 years ago, and I couldn't be happier.  The old black had started to "transfer" some of it color over to everything - trunks, boards and coolers.  If yours is the black, expect it to start doing that soon if it's not already.  I also added the same material to the gunnels and nose, so no more slippery jumping/diving.
