Default Diamond plate nose guard install?

Looking for someone to add this on my 23' Super Vee. Looking for welded, not riveted. Joe (Quiet Riot) is booked until Jan and my other leads haven't panned out. Hoping to get this done before I wrap the boat soon. Any leads would be appreciated!

My local airport had an aluminum welder. When I had a corroded hole in the anchor locker. 3/16 aluminum. If they can do airplanes, they should be able to weld a boat.

Might cost you your first born but Stevens will weld one on for you.

Got some of that tape just the other day.
Was at b-mart looking for duct tape and all I could find was the gorilla.

Actually they rivet. They don't do welds. Had mine done there. Ampro in clackamas does great welding

plan on new zolotone as it will burn off. depending on how old of a boat cleaning the area to be welded down to fresh aluminum is a must, it will need to be sanded or at a minimum stainless wire brush. or the weld is going to look like b-s on a fence post.

If there is any corrosion on the boat now the new welds may look like poo poo. Depending on the age of your vessel glueing or riveting it on may not be a bad idea. Your fabricator should be able to let you know.

I had this added on this boat,, it was welded and not riveted, but it will burn your zolotone on the inside, I was thinking if you could keep a wet towel on the inside, it might minimize the burn marks on the inside

As guthooker said, you can see the burn front the front nose piece, but you can see the rear piece burn marks are almost hidden, I would think that if you could keep a wet towel inside to dissipate the heat, the burn marks could be minimal
