Most of my mank boats have been welded half a dozen times. $80/weld sounds expensive.

Don't be scared of learning to weld. Its not that hard, and you have the cheat sheet from folks who have done it before.

Learning to weld will pay big dividends in the long run. Also, boulder boat works won't fix all cracks. I took a boat up there before I learned to weld, and they said that they couldn't do it. That was my inspriation to learn to weld... that and not wanting to drop a grand on a creek boat every time I cracked a boat.
