Water jackets

New member and new owner of a 1988 Prostar 190. Just bought the boat a couple of weeks ago and was dissapointed this weekend to find water seeping out of cracks in the Exhaust Water Jackets where the Mastercraft logo is.
How quickly do I need to get this taken care of, and can they be welded if a shop has a correct weld procedure for this typs of weld?

Searched the forum without finding this subject covered anywhere so hope I am not beating a dead horse with my first post.

Mine on my 93 Prostar look to be cast iron. Is yours cast iron? Cast iron is very hard to repair by wielding. You probably should talk to the shops first. If it was me--I would replace but others may recommend something like JB Weld.

this can be welded, cast iron is welded all the time, just find a shop that can do it. it will certainly be less than $250 for replacements.

I wouldn't worry about rushing to fix this, it won't effect engine cooling.

Just received new manifolds from a place in longwood Fl, $199 each. They weigh a ton built by Barr. Hopefully will put a thread together in a couple of weeks of the install

Pics of boat and other albums in my photo section
