Can anyone offer any opinion on the quality of the weld pictured below. I purchased this boat used and it appears the hull took a little hit near the keel at the bow. It must have gotten a crack and so was re-welded. The previous owner (not the first owner of the boat) had no idea it was even there, claiming he didn't use the boat all that much, but who really knows. I have asked around regarding getting the weld reinforced from inside the hull but it turns out that since the hull is painted, its an absolute pain to get the weld done since there is so much prep work involved to begin with. Is the current weld good enough in terms of if it ain't broke don't fix it? Is it worthwhile keeping the boat or moving on from it ASAP?
