Boom repair

I snapped the boom of my Latigo at the Spring Fling last week. I have no experience with this type of repair. There are compound curves in the area of the break, which may or may not make a difference. The boom is oval in cross section.

I would appreciate any help with this repair. Also, I remember someone mentioning they had boom repair kits available.

Here's some photos of the carnage.

Terry at Carboweave has the repair kits:

Here is a video I noticed while searching for Terry's website. I only viewed bits and pieces of it but thought it may be helpful.
