Outboard designs up to 14'

I made a 2 1/2" scarf for 1/4" plywood sides. While turning one piece over after sanding, the scarf broke (cracked) at the edge of a scarf. Slap it on and fiberglass over the break? Scarf a new piece? Add a doubler on the outside as though it were a butt joint? It broke at the edge of the scarf, nearly through the 1/4" thickness. I'm confident about the quality of the material, it's from NZ and has British Standard 1086 rating for marine plywood, but I'm not happy that it broke through at nearly nominal thickness. Maybe even double the sides from transom to 1' past the break. Appreciate your advice, thanks.
