Speed instrument broken :(

Hi all

Please see the pic below. I've a speed gauge on the zodiac but whilst fetling with the boat the weekend noticed that it was n't going to work as I'd broken the lug off where the pipe joins the bit that flips into the water.

Is it repairable by gluing the pipe direct to the white plastic?

Does anyone recognize it so I can try and get a new sender - unless some one has one?

Is it worth the effort of repair / replace considering I have the GPS unit that will tell me the speed anyhow?

Thoughts please.

They're not very expensive, so I'd replace it. there's a few for sale on Ebay.
