Re: Trailer- cross beam weld

Pull the boat and keel bracket. Grind the paint/finish off within 6" of each side of the crack. Then bring it to a welding shop. It shouldn't take more than a couple of hours to fabricate some gussets and tension plates and weld them on. If all he heeds to to is grind a little & reweld, maybe an hour. Figure $300 tops.
