I've got a few cracks in the hull and a rib or 2 that needs repairs

Any one do aluminum welding?

The cracks can be just welded up but the ribs will be the main issue

Saw those before and have given it a thought they cost as much as getting it welded would cost

I tried jb weld,flex seal, marine goop and other sealants but nothing worked

The stick epoxy should work good it gets hard as steel just mix it under water

or it gets very sticky in your hands . i patched a hole in my bath tub with it

a few years ago and it still holding. http://www.lowes.com/pd/Oatey-Fix-It-St ... ty/3132883
