Similar problem

How about when the joint (half lap joint I guess) is separating?

Clean it out as well as you can. A broken hacksaw blade can work well. Then clean it well with denatured alcohol , apply glue and clamp back together.

I'd worry that such a short section would pull apart again without a screw to convince it to stay in place. Worth a try but if it happens again, I'd fair it and fill the gap with epoxy.

I fixed it for you.
I cut out the damaged wood and very carefully cut another scarf joint about 3:1 L/W ratio. I used a "Fein Multimaster' with very fine teeth on the blade to make the 'cuts, then 'shaved' the ends with a super sharp chisel so there would be no 'gaps'.
I replaced with entirely new wood, used recorcinol glue and then screwed it to the old, then bunged the countersunk screw holes.
Good as new.
It wont come apart as do 'glue only' repairs.

Nice fix.

Personally, I stay away from resorcinol since there are many more modern glues that do as good if not better than this classic glue. At one time, it was the only waterproof glue. Today we have Titebond III and epoxy's that are awesome.

Disagree ... for me nothing beats Recorcinol as the adhesion and doesnt lose its bond when the wood becomes saturated. Its still 'the glue' used in the manufacture of marine plywood.
