Aluminum Boat Repair

4 posts in this topic

I need some direction on a little "Ding" I have on my PROV.

It's on the bottom of the Hull where the "Seam" of the Transom and Hull meet. No punctures, but I'm concerned about hull integrity and need it looked at and/or repaired by an expert.

Thanks for your suggestions in advance!

Can you get at both sides of the ding? If the ding is not to deep I would try a plastic or rubber hammer and a block of wood on the opposite side for a dolly to keep from going to far. You may need 2 people. If you are a little paranoid after bumping out the dent scuff the inside and put a little J-B weld on the dent and you should be set

I guess I should have been more exact.

This is actually an abraison scrape on the bottom portion of the seam where the rivets are. Part of this seam has been scraped away and may compromise the strength of the boat in this area.

I'm hoping to get a referral here for someone locally (TC area)who is known to fix these problems or tell me it's no real big deal.

Chells,

Not sure where in the Cities you are located, but there is a great place in the North Burbs (Ham Lake or East Bethel, not sure which) called George's Fiberglass Repair. They repair both glass and aluminum boats. I had an issue with an Alumacraft that got dented before I ever put it in the water and they fixed it up like new. Could never tell a repair was made. Give them a call and have them look at your Pro V. They should be able to help.

    • We actually just watched the first season of this show on Netflix finally. We loved it! We binge watched it and it only took us a little over a week to watch the entire season. We actually just finished watching Breaking Bad this winter and this was the next show we started. Season 2 should be out on Netflix within the next month or so I should think?
    • A lot of great ideas , seems liquid smoke is a fav, lipton is a good thought too. Great looking burglars fellas, and that bacon wrapped meatloaf looks mouth watering thirdeye.  I went back through my pics looking for the open pit burgers but all I found were steaks, but holy moly I must eat burglars a lot Cuz there's a bunch. Think next time I'll mix it up and see if anyone notices, thanks gents and keep the pics coming!!
    •   I agree. I wasn't exactly counting down to the midseason premiere, either, but it was a good, solid episode. I also really liked the clothes line scene--best action sequence in quite some time. I was impressed with the start overall and it's nice to see some sense of urgency and not just Rick moping around licking wounds.   Last night was...okay. Nothing stood out as bad, but it wasn't mind-blowingly good either. I am still reserving judgment for how this season ends, but half two is off to a pretty good start. I just hope they don't go off on a side character episode and kill the momentum they have going...
    • I for got, we added wild rice too!!  and only hand harvested too, I think it makes a huge difference in taste.
    •   Think his staff just wanted a break ........
    • What is your prediction on how soon after ice out that people will be out on Mille Lacs.  I am guessing within a week.   
    • I just pulled the trigger and bought the Milwaukee 1/2 inch brushless fuel drill and the 6 inch K drill setup.  Tested it this past weekend.   Could not be happier. 23 holes and battery still had one bar left. This was in approximately 18-20 inches of good ice. 5.0 battery. 
    • the one mentioned here, they have gone up to $399.99 but they still had free shipping and no has them around here.  they were very pleasant to talk to and get info.
    • One big boy just left Elite and went back to Mathews. Elite is a good shooting bow. 
    •     I'm sure God approves. After all, he's not in charge down here anyway...
