I have a 16 ft magnum and had a welder do some work on it . He beefed up the transom and rewelded/strengtthened the center console. he said he had 16 hours into it so the total bill came out to 2400. I was a little shocked but just paid it. Is that the going rate for welders--he was 105/hr?? I was a little surprised. I could post a pic and a show the work that was done. It just seemed a lot for a little. Anyone have any experience with welders.???
