Default Liner bonding repair

I have a 1989 27 ocean master which I am in the middle of restoring. When I knock on the hull sides , there is a distinct rattling. I can see where the liner has broke bond with the hull where the liner stiffeners are located. I plan on drilling numerous small holes in the liner, and injecting something to re bond the liner to the hull.
Any suggestions on thickened epoxy vs methylacrylate? I wont be able to really clean the 2 surfaces prior to injecting,probably just hit it with compressed air.

I would figure out a way to clean it. power washer, degreaser and bleach, etc.. I would also want a bonding agent that is compatible with a damp environment when the repair is made.

You are asking which half-assed repair will work best.... The answer is neither. Either way it's a band-aid on a 30 year old hull that need serious repair.
