When I bought my used tinny I had the seller fill the boat with water just above the chine, found one pin hole from a sinker wedged between one of the the struts and outer hull, it was an easy fix with a blind rivet and sikaflex but I bought the boat knowing this...

Google "Aluminium Fabrication Albury Wodonga" and check the results - Ring around to the listed suppliers and ask if they do what you want?? - Weld / Crack Inspection, etc. Ask for a Quote via your email, and go from there. I was in Yack, now in Wang - Feedback appreciated
