Thumbs up Similar mast issue

Hi, a friend of mine has linked me to this forum as I have recently suffered the same fate as rlongfield - i.e. my mast is busted right up.

The good news is, she wasn't in the water at the time. She is currently undergoing some repair work and fell from her elevated cradle as a result of unfortunate incident involving a mini american football. The fall caused superficial damage to various sections of the hull but the mast took the brunt of the fall and snapped in two like a twiglet.

Obviously its a bit of a sad sight and I am keen to get her back in one piece, but I have minimal resources at hand do it with. I have whole load of string and absolutely loads of a really really strong glue which should do the trick but I am worried about damaging the integrity of what is a premium sailing vessel.

Any help much appreciated.
Cheers chaps.
