It's been a while since I've been here and need a little help last weekend I snapped off the base of the comp tip when trying to right the mast . The brake is clean and the tapered part of the comp tip is still clued in the end aluminum .Has any one successfully repaired this buy using a piece of wood ,haveing it milled on one end so that it fits inside the comp tip and the other end becomes the piece that fits in the mast . Or does any one have a line on a used comp tip for sale a new one is out of my price range right know and am worried the getaway won't get sailed this summer.

My comp tip has started to develop cracks around the joint with the aluminum section - - any suggestion?

I do not store the mast stepped, and it's under cover when not being sailed.

Boat is a 2003.

Hobie Rep - - any suggestion?
