Whisker pole end repair

Hello,

The end of my whisker pole has come off. I am not sure what I should use to reattach it. Can I use epoxy? JB Weld? Bulldog? Screws? I'm lost. Any suggestions?

Thanks

If it's a slip/slide in fit, self tapping machine screws should work. #6 or #8 x 3/8" or 1/2" long, 1 on ea side should do it, 180 deg. apart.

I have pop rivets for the ends of my whisker and spin poles. Screws might work also, may be better or worst, either in the end would work.

Whisker pole flare

Hmmm, The end of the aluminum whisker pole is somewhat flared where the end pulled out. Another boater here suggested cutting off the pole just before the flare. Any thoughts?
