Has anyone fixed a slingshot board after a binding has ripped out the board inserts? This happened on a 2010 board (so no fast track) and while I have a new board I'd like to try to salvage the broken one to use at the cable.

Here's where I'm at so far:
Opened up and cleaned out the damaged area, reset the the inserts, filled with a JB Weld 2 part epoxy product made for use with wood, and sanded down.

I'm thinking about laying a thin layer of fiberglass over it but I'm not sure if it's really needed or if it would cause more issues. I've done a minimal amount of fiberglass work so I'm not very skilled at doing the work. The JB weld product is supposed to have a bond stronger than wood and be waterproof. Still, I have doubts that I wouldn't end up with a cone shaped blow out on the first digger .

Anyone have any thoughts or recommendations?
