Laser gunwale repair

Hi,
I recently glued the gunwale of my Laser with 3M 5200. The result was not what I expected, and it opened up again. Could someone suggest a good material to fix this please?

That happened about 10 years ago in my 2006 Vanguard. I cleaned out the gap, and I’m sure I then somehow further cleaned it with acetone. I only use West products, so I used West epoxy to glue the hull back to the deck. I can’t recall if I thickened the epoxy or used a pre-thickened epoxy. I still sail that boat and it’s been fine since then.
