My Starcraft all welded aluminum deep V boat developed separate 1" and 8" longitudinal cracks in the hull near the keel near beginning of curve up to bow, unfortunately in an area that was contacting the center channel on my trailer. Thanks to Nautical1 Marina out of Lorian for the improper trailer set-up and my lack of experience/knowledge. I'm done with the whine, except to mention that my bilge pump died at almost same time while in Quebec! However, no one was injured, stranded or worse, so I'm fortunate that my boating was cut one day short last week. Can someone recommend a good place to have my aluminum boat weld repaired in Akron/Canton area? How expensive are such weld repairs? Do they lay a bead of weld or attach a patch plate? Do these kind of repairs hold up? Any experiences or advise appreciated.
