"Any ideas on how I should go about repairing this?"

Use a chain saw to create 5 equal length pieces then deposit in trash can.

Or

Use for Viking funeral.

Why risk dinging the axe on a rock under the board?

Wait for a new moon night, then burn the sucker, it will put out a black column of smoke, hence the new moon night time burn. Been there, done that.

Burn it as an homage to the bringing of good wind for next season.
We will all appreciate it. Wink

But why waste what could be used as a decent sledge for snow covered hillsides? A paddle to steer, is all you'll need.

Mind you, if it goes anything like old 'busted up' fibre glass kayaks, you'd be well advised to carry an reinforced umbrella ( of the type some scandalous fellows keep handy for leaping out of second floor bedroom windows when they hear irate husbandly footsteps pounding up the stairs) as an air-brake!

I have to agree with NW on this one only, bury the sucker so it stands straight up then torch it and dance around it naked while blasting "Stairway to Heaven". Guaranteed to bring wind (or the cops) the next day.

Torching it might actually be the way to make it repairable, with something like G/flex, TAP Poly-Weld, or Mr. Sticky Poly-Bonder.

The trick here is that polyethylene can be bonded by some adhesives, if it is carefully cleaned then given a flame treatment. The principle is that the flame modifies the normally low-energy surface state of the polymer by oxidizing it, making it much more bondable.

One reference suggests a water test: if water beads up on the surface (as it will on unmodified polyethylene) the flame treatment did not work. If water wets the surface evenly, the flame treatment worked and the surface ought to be bondable.
