Nope. Get it fixed before the weld breaks free & damages something. If you have cabling in the pipe, it will have to be removed to prevent damage due to the heat of welding
Ditto. Had the same problem. Thought I would "take it easy on her" and try to delay the repair. BAD IDEA.
When the original crack gave way after hitting an unexpected wave, the stress created on the other welds caused two more to break, which effectively trippled the cost of repair. My repair bill was about $200, but I removed and reinstalled my canvas top and e-box myself which probably saved me $100. Get it fixed now unless you want to spend more $ than necessary.
