Thanx for the tips guys.
What I need to do firs is to somehow claen off the small rough epoxy bead tha holds the two halves of the boom together. There is no glass joiner tape and this is why it split open.

As soon as I have an even surface I will join with glass strip and when structural I can do all the rest.
I will extend the boom by installing a central stabilizing rod in the back of the boom and using high density foam shaped to the correct size.
This will then be epoxy glassed over onto the old boom and later with loads of sanding I hope to get a nice joint.

It is basically the same tecnique I used to make the dog box plug and molod for the 222.

The trick will be to lesten the amount of re-painting I will have to do. We will try not to repaint the entre heli if it could be helped.
