Default RE: Code Red - Broken batten removal

Instead of removing the batten I just cut a 3" piece of standard 8mm carbon tube, glued 1/2 of it into the section of batten I removed, then pushed the remaining 1/2 into the broken batten remaining in the pocket, essentially making a two piece batten (same as 2 piece mast). I will know better tomorrow if the sail sets correctly but I would imagine it will, the fit was perfect and can't see why this won't work. I'll report after the 50mph winds forecast tomorrow.
