|RichH||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.|

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.

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.

|Sabreman||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.|

|Boatsmith||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.|

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

|Boatsmith||The super glue I use comes from my local hobby shop. It has their label on it. They have what they call super thin and acts almost like penetrating oil. Then they they have what they call gap filling which is a little thicker. I use this the most. They also have a thick flavor which I have only used once and have not seen a use for it since. I have used other brands and they are not all the same. I don't exactly know the differences but we all like this brand the best. We also use the activator to kick the stuff off.|

As Boatsmith indicates, it is common to use epoxy which is only a binder for the color of the dust.
