There was about an inch of clear plastic packing tape covered with colored trim tape stripes between the chrome stripe and the break.
It would seem that bit of tape provided the structure to make the break happen just past it. The break has been cut cleanly here.
A 5-inch long CF rolled plug is made first (on a spare Allegro boom I had) and then, once cured, is epoxied into the pod end of the boom.
The plug is 2 layers of 1.7 uni-directional carbon fiber and extends into the large end of the boom to the pod former.
The remaining boom is epoxied to the plug and jigged for straight and true alignment.
Once this joint cures, a 2 layer roll, 4-inches long, of 4 oz. uni-directional CF was wrapped on the outside with a 0.7 Fiberglass outer layer extending about 6 inches down the boom completing the repair.
