I have Bomar hatches. A piece of the hatch frame broke off. It is where the elbow that holds the hatch open fastens to the frame of the hatch. Half of it broke off so there is no hole for the bolt. Has anyone had experience fixing this sort of problem. It looks like aluminum. Can a good welder weld a nut in the place of the hole or weld more metal and retap the hole?
It is cast aluminum and can be welded back together, if you saved the broken piece. Or a new bit of aluminum can be fashioned to fit.
