Has any one had any issues with their propel drive stress cracking where it pivot's? Is there any real permanent way to repair this? Took to several welders and they say its not aluminum and can't be welded that its some form of pot metal. JB weld doesn't hold. The boat is a 2012 but really only been used about 8 times total.

The older model you have there, which is thinner around the clamp, was more prone to stress cracking, particularly if the clamp was over tightened. The material is actually cast aluminum. I haven't seen any one weld one but in the past we've drilled thru the clamp and tube and thru-bolted the whole assembly. Others have done similar repairs.

Others may chime in but you can also use the search feature in the above right side. You can search within a specific thread by navigating to it then using the search feature.
