I have some cracks in the welds around my bow eye hook on an aluminum xpress boat. Any recommendations on where to get this fixed in the Dallas area? Would a general welding shop be better/cheaper than a boat repair place?

Man Iā€™m not looking at it but if I was getting cracks around my bow eye I would be trying to figure out why. Trailer setup, bad bulk boards, trailer issues, bow roller not adjusted right., ect something. And me personally, Iā€™m going to someone who welds on boats for a living. My .02

Here are a few pics. Everything on the trailer seems to be set up right. If something sticks out let me know.

They fixed it right up in less than a day. Charged me 1 hour of work for $80. Will try to get some pics posted up of the repair.
