I need to build new skates anyway...
Well, it turns out that there was more damage than I realized. One of two front bolts, that attach the plate and truck to the boot, had broken. The other front bolt was missing the nut. Also, on closer inspection, I found that the ski plate had broken all the way across along the front of the rear truck. Luckily, the ski has multiple layers, and the top layer is still holding it all together.

Back to the drawing board.
