Repairing Carlisle blades

I have some older Carlisle blades that have broken right at the flange where the shaft meets the blade. So now what I have are 2 cracked plastic rings around the male part of the balde that is inserted into the oar shaft. I have used these as low water blades for the past couple years with no real problems, and tried to repair with epoxy which fails quickly. Doesn't seem to be too much a problem, but now I am really relying on the lock in spring mechanism to hold the blade in place both from spinning and riding up and down, so I would like to fix it. Any suggestions, or has anyone had this same problem, blades are about 10 years old so well beyond the call and complain period, even though it appears to be a manufacturing error.
