yes the crack can be welded and fixed, the cost will largely be associated with how much work you put in it, the welder won't do it in the boat, if you find a welder that says he can do it in the boat you need to find another guy to do it as this guy doesn't know what he's doing, the repaired area needs to be heated before the welding begins, and the engine will need to be taken apart so you'll either have to pay him to prep it or you remove and prep it yourself. I personally have had several blocks repaired this way, take it apart and sent it to a race shop.
