Repairing centerboard 'ears'

A friend has FS #202. Recently he discovered that the centerboard has a crack where the cable attaches to raise and lower the board. There is a pin through the board and a gap for the pulley and cable. One of the ears is cracked through with a 1/8" gap, and he felt loss of the board was possible if this went any further.

He is now in a quandry as to how best repair. Any experience or suggestions? It seems this is a high load area and strength would be a premium.

Thanks in advance!
