How to fix a ripped boot?

Hi, I have a Schnitz ski from the 90's. The rubber bindings have had cracks in them, and now it finally ripped. Here is a picture of the boot:

And another: http://img.nauticexpo.com/images_ne/photo-g/water-ski-bindings-160727.jpg
It ripped on the side, where the red line is:

Now, I can take the boot apart and take those pieces off. I was thinking I could get a piece of rubber (or whatever it is made out of), and trace out a new piece and put it back on. Any suggestions where I can find this material? I really don't want to buy another whole boot for $125 dollars.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!

Re: How to fix a ripped boot?

That is a Wiley binding.  Go to the Wileyski website and you can order new overlays.

http://www.wileyski.com/shopcategory.asp?catID=88

$20 for a pair of new overlays.
I think you can order them with or without the Wiley graphics.

After 6 years my bindings were starting to show some cracking about 1/2 way through the front wrap so I replaced them last week.  I probably worked on it for a couple of hours to remove the boot from the plate, remove and replace the wraps, but I did and it is as good as new.

Dude, the shipping costs more than the overlays! I did a quick google and found this: http://www.perfski.com/Three-Event-Equi … rlays.html

Will it work? It's only 18 bucks with shipping!
