I have the same problem of front end snapping off with my Yak, my best solution is to glass that section up. I bought the lightest fiberglass cloth from eBay, cut some straps with a very sharp knife and then used thin CA to glass them over the broken area. I wore a medical glove and used my fingers to spray the glue. This way you would only add a few grams and the result is almost invisible. I also use water base PU to glass my EPO planes and cowls, but WBPU would be too heavy for EPP.
