mine came loose at the front for about 4 inches..I cleaned it and used Marine-Tex about four years ago and its still stuck..I jacked a piece of wood against it to apply pressure while it dried..

3m makes a two sided tape that a large number of keel guard companies use, that is the easiest and will not destroy the gel coat if it ever needs to be removed.

I used 3M 4200 and a racheting strap on the rear of mine. Mine is probably 15 years old and the whole thing is disenegrating. Not looking forward to the removal and replacement.

Assuming thisis a Hamby since it is 15 years old, We moved from the provided fiberglass and liquid urethane to mix, to a windshield urethane several years ago on the installs. It really has worked well and your local auto shop or body shop should have Elastomeric or similar windshield install adhesive to use reattaching your Hamby.
