    Default Alumuminum Boat Repairs

    Ok, so I have a 22ft weldcraft jet that has experienced a hull dimension change. it slid up across a rock and now there is a sizeable dent running from the right front back straight to the jet intake. the dent pushed up the floorboard structure, motors mount on the right and the jet a little. I need to get this fixed and realigned. does anyone have anywhere they would recommend for such a large repair? It's going to be a claim, so I hope they don't total my boat.

    does greatland work with insurance smoothly. I want to make sure it isn't a big hassle for whom ever works on the boat. I'll probably drop it as soon as the water freezes so I don't lose any fishing time.

    I need to get my boat insured, do they ask where you take it and how you drive it?

    Call Marc Johnson of www.alaskaweld.com at (907) 841-4323. He has done extensive modifications to my boat (float pods, jet tunnel, transom extension, etc.) and there is nothing beyond his capabilities! He is licensed, bonded and insured and has experience working with insurance companies. Many of the repairs I have seen him do, would have been written off by others. His shop is located out KGB in Wasilla off mile 7.5 near the KGB 3 bears.
    Give him a call, you'll be glad you did...top notch professional work at a very competitive price. Its well worth the drive!
