    Default stress fracture

    Looking for opinions I have a very small slow leak off a weld, it happened when I hit the bank too hard off Copper River, I bought some aluminum putty that is suppose to work under water, or should I just have ot welded.

    Weld it. It could stress crack some more due to vibration, etc....

    Have a re-inforcement welded into the failure. If you just weld a stress crack, it is almost guranteed to crack again.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.
