The Loony yoke

This is the yoke from the Loon 17.  (It has since been cleaned.)
The ends are kind of messed up.  There's a crack a few inches long from one screw hole, and the wood seems to be missing that was between the holes and the ends.
I think I can glue or epoxy the crack (before attempting to refinish the yoke), but I'm not sure what to do about the missing wood.

(Update, November 12:  I epoxied the crack shut, then cut out a rectangle about twice as wide as the screw hole and epoxied in a piece of teak, and added fiberglass tape to the underside of the end.)
