Us South Texas rednecks would flip that boat over and weld it.

Stupid center console made it more complicated to flip than I wanted to deal with.

That weld bead will probably cost you 10 knots of speed with the drag and may make the boat wander a little. ;D
So when is the maiden voyage?

I know it! I didn't plate over the other holes because I didn't want extra drag. I'll epoxy them (and carry a roll of flex seal tape).

Crabbing is picking up fast and the fall salmon run is on. Hopefully I can get lines in the water in the next two weeks.

Where`s my invite for the crabbing? :'(
Is the need enough? or does the want suffice?

Boating is not a cost v benefit sport. You gotta want to do it, the rest is all downhill from there.  ;)

Now.... welding....on a project? Thats where you weigh the purchase price + time and materials side of the equation for the final outcome of what it is worth. Sounds like you made that decision.

Phil Swift would surely approve of this repair.
