Thread: Bracket Cracked, Advice needed

  1. #1

    Default Bracket Cracked, Advice needed

    I need your opinion. I Really need your advice for a serious problem. I've suspected for some time now that the little woman has
    been cheating. The usual signs; phone rings, if I answer the caller hangs up, and she's going out with the girls a lot. I try to stay awake to look out for her when she comes home but I usually fall asleep. Anyway last night about midnight,
    I hid in the shed behind the boat, when she came home she got out of someones car buttoning her blouse, then she took her panties out of her purse and slipped them on .......... It was at that moment while crouched behind the boat I noticed a hairline crack in the outboard mounting bracket. Is that something I can weld or do I need to replace it? Let me know.

    For hairline cracks you need a welder that can weld the crack of Dawn.......

    Now's your chance to get that new boat you've been wanting! Tell your wife about the crack and explain to her that its unsafe to use in this condition so your going to have to stay home every weekend this summer. I bet she'll practically drag you down to the dealer ship.

    You have to be careful on this one, not all cracks are the same, some need a lot of prep while others you can just forge ahead and plunge right in......full steam ahead, figuratively speaking of course

    You should have bought a boat made by a quality manufacture , as far as the Ol'lady ....Just get out your phone and go through your Hooker list and make the call.

    Good luck on the boat repair.

    Make sure you find a good welder that can fill any crack with deeper penetration!

    Penetration of the crack must not be taken lightly. It is the objective of all welders to penetrate the crack fully and without compromise. Those that cannot fill the crack are usually rejected as unendowed welder wannabees. Just sayin.

    Be careful how much heat you pour into the crack while welding, To much heat can turn a tiny crack into a gaping hole and decrease the ride quality and overall enjoyment of said craft
