Bright ideas for emergency repair to Yanmar lube cooler

Investigating a water leak from my Yanmar 6LP and I have discovered the end cap of the lube oil cooler is rotten through.

tightened the end bolt to stop the drip and it has cracked across the face of the plate.

It is just a large flat bit of circular metal with a hole in the middle for a bolt. Nothing clever...but Cowes on a Sunday isn't exactly brilliant for stuff.

Will see if RHP marine have opened with it being Cowes week and all but doubt it.

Balls....

Anyone got a bright idea how I can jury rig a fix A-Team style so the whole weekend isn't written off?

Sitting in Cowes at the moment feeling a bit annoyed.

Many thanks to Ph@ntastic and gmc for inspired words...that epoxy stuff is brilliant.

Up to 2 months for the bits to come from Barrus, apparently...

Am thinking might just get a new one made up...it's only a disc with a hole in it!
