found a great bit of kit from Bunnings a" balance assist handle" $24.95 this can pick my plastic up (24kgs) with this after endless adhesive attempts this popped it back into shape in about 30 seconds (leave yak in sun or warm with hair dryer) job done (ready for my bridge to manly beach race now Im entered in the 50+ fossils on plastic category :lol: no chance against racing ski glass.

Pretty cool! Could have used for my old Reload, had a little bow underneath. Will have to keep in mind for any future issues.
