since this is an old board, just do your best to fix it with marine tex or epoxy resin & fiberglass cloth.

10 crack is pretty big, did the board take on water? if so, it needs to be completely dry inside before sealing it.

Marine Tex is a white creamy substance available at boating supply stores. It goes on easy, cures in about a day, then is sandable and paintable. I know this because I too own a Mistral. Since buying my Mistral 2 months ago Ive become somewhat of an expert on board repair...
