    HMW....I don't see where he says the boat was in salt water Otherwise I'd prolly call it junk. I wish more members would post their location...it ain't like we're gonna hunt them down or mess with them!!

    Your right, not sure he did. I just took it for granted because every boat here has been in salt water. Chesapeke bay on one side and Atlantic ocean on the other, nothing but salt water here everywhere. So I just naturally think everybody has salt water to deal with. Its a bear on aluminum or anything else for that matter.
    Your right about what part of the country their from, its interesting

    I'm guessing you ahvew lots of fresh water?

    Sorry guys, I thought I had filled out the location. Fixed it. You're all welcome to come on up.

    As far as I can tell it hasn't seen much salt water. But I picked it up from the Anchorage area, so it could have seen some use in the salt.

    I welded up the cracks and old mounting holes, seemed to weld OK.

    Thanks for the tips guys.

    Great. There would be no guessing if it had been in salt water much. Glad you got it fixed
