repair windsurfer one design

06 February 2017 - 11:27 PM

i have acquired an original one design which i use to sail many years ago.  they are made form polyethylene which is hard to repair once cracked. 

 

apart form a 3 inch crack in the underside everything is complete- hardly been used

 

what is best way to repair crack - plastic welding sounds good but doesn't seem to last - any suggestions ?

 

i was actually thinking of putting epoxy or sikaflex in small air bubble then  Sikaflex or glue a  a thin sheet of  aluminium ( or plastic) as patch - it would be proud but hopefully the plate would stop the plastic from cracking ?
