My mate works in tungsten carbide and I was amazed to discover that they glue wear parts and cutting tips to metal so there must be something that will stick a rubbing strake to a dinghy. :D

An enquiry to Loctite might come up with some suggestions

I have used silvertip epoxy to glue bronze and brass , aluminum . I have glued bronze to Ipe , brass to aluminum.
The key is to really rough up the parts you are going to epoxy . The more bite the better. I used epoxy with silica
to stick it. No problems so far. Make sure the parts are super clean " acetone or alcohol" . There is a whole chapter
about epoxying metal in the Gougeon brothers book on boat building.
Novi 23 finally launched !

Thanks, topwater. I probably should have considered this originally but didn't.
I just finished slapping three more layers of tape on the centerline and will finish with some more graphite/epoxy, and leave that option for next time I need to repair it since I am hampered by a schedule right now.

BTW, I can't believe what a sloppy job I'm doing this time around compared to the guy who built the boat...all dictated by rushing.

And knowing you can fix it. Don't forget that little tidbit. It's easier to look at it and say "eh... sandpaper next time" than it was to recognize "it is all fixable" while giving birth to your boat the first time.
