Your halves may be one complete object, but geometry-wise, they aren't connected at all if you didn't merge vertices. Select all vertices in the middle, then choose EditCpolygons>MergeVertices(options box) and set the value to a very low number so that the vertices overlapping each other near the seam will merge.
