Re: Bow Eyes

Bob that Looks real familiar.

I need to remember where I saw the 1/2" Eye at. Premade ready to install. I think it was at Fraser Bronze Foundry. it is not listed but I think that they make one ready to weld on.

Mine was painted by Chaps last year. I had to do some repair touch ups this last spring. Tomorrow I will spray bleach o...

Run if your boat is in his boat's condition. It Might work if you had Clean Corrosion Free Aluminum. If not your Painting over the Corrosion which will make it accelerate. Big time!

Re: Is this fixable and what should it cost

+ the Weld time, Paint, Decal, and Carpet for the inside. It can be repaired but it will take some time and money. Besides the ANal Eye Factor it should not hurt anything except your resale value. Keep eye on it to watch it. A Badge of Honor or shame to remember the story to be told to all :nutkick:
