RIP Beloved Alternator?
My board's dead right?
I loved this board, it's probably my favourite. But it's dead, right? There's no point in putting some new cloth over the cracks? Those carbon rod's haven't worked some magic and saved the core have they?

It looks repairable but it'll never be the same. Unless you're handy with repairs yourself I'd say the money is better spent going towards a replacement than towards a repair but that's your call.
