glass dave actuall the piece is like 6 inches long by 3 inches wide, so you think crazy glue would work? any other things to try? i used a clear epoxy and it seemed to work but with this constant heat this weel of 90+ temps it seemed to soften the expoxy and came loose!!!

The glue they use in the construction on acrylic fish tanks will fuse it together. Not sure what it is but its really strong .

Can you buy a new one? If you can I would do it because whenever you try to sell the boat the survey guy will throw that cost into the mix so you might as well enjoy a new one now and get your monies worth out of it. Just my 2 $
