Ok so I busted the nose off my sharpeye in the fun little windswell last Sunday (wasn't paying attention to how I drifted over a sand bar ). Now I have repaired a nose before, but this one is different. The top 8" of foam broke off cleanly, but it took some of the topsheet with it. The nose broke off and ripped a good 12" wide section of glass down the top of the board off with it. It ripped glass the glass parallel to the rails a good 2' down the center of the board (stringer is exposed). I've since cut the glass cleanly off the rest of the board. My question is how to approach the repair with regards to the glass. Should I:
1.) Cut the glasss of top of the broken nose, reattach nose, and then reglass the half the topsheet where foam is exposed (including the glass from the nose)?
2.) Reglass the top where it was ripped away, and then reattach nose in standard fashion?
Perhaps there is a better approach?
