Yes, but you need a special glue that actually dissolves plastic, so you can form a welded bond. If you use a standard glue it will peel of.
Check out the link below, the author gives a details description how to do it.

Hope that helps and good luck with the repair

There are other ways to repair plastic and fiberglass boats. I work with a business in Anchorage Alaska and this is one of their specaltys. They usually do these kinds of repairs on Vehicles of all kinds. If anyone is in Alaska is interested and needs their plastic and or fiberglass boats or anything else that is, give us a call. The name of the Business is "Arctic B.A.T.C.S. LLC. Mobile Vehicle Interior/Exterior Restoration Services" and we do have some pictures on Facebook of before and after repairs of work done.
