Question re fixing a stern cap....

Just picked up an old RPM MAX that otherwise is in good?? shape, but it has a stern and bow cap[remember those?] and the lower edge of the stern cap is sort of lifting off the under surface of the stern, leaving about a gap of maybe 1/2 inch. I think it happened from the previous owner dragging the boat too much causing the leading edge of the cap to separate.
I dont think it will be too much of a problem in deep water but might in shallow rocky stuff. Any suggestions for fixing this issue much appreciated. Would applying heat cause it to shrink back to normal?
Thanks a lot.
