My daggerboard is separating from the tip down about 4 or 5 inches. What is the best way to fix this? Is there some type of epoxy I should use? Any help would be appreciated.

Thx.

G-Flex and fiberglass, I would guess.

There are some videos at the West System site that may give you guidance.

I have the older fglass dagger. The newer ones are plastic, I believe, and may respond to heat sealing.
