On the front V of a old V bottom a few years ago I used gutter seam sealer, it is made for aluminum gutters...worked good.

any pics? If its between the sidewall and hull I would weld it to prevent further splitting. How big and where is it?

Its not split as far as I know.Its a Durolite aluminum boat (Duroboat) the seams are some kind of ( Enginered joints..)theres leaks here and there, I beleive its the rubber or whatever was used to insure the seal that has somewhat dried out in a few spots. Theres no rivets on this boat just 3 long seams plus the transom thats why I dont want to use Gluvit or any other product along these lines,it would be just a waste,I only want to seal the seams...And no I dont have pics,saw the explanation of how to do it... but thats beyond me ,some day when one of my sons visits me, and hes not in a rush I might get some pics up,,,,Mike
