You're all set then. Find a good welder and check out his work to be sure he's as good as he says he is. He'll only get one shot at it. They don't make these anymore. :)

That can be welded and ground back down if it’s aluminum.

Depends on what it was cast from, but probably can be fixed with a bit of work.

Well I was trying to replace the steel screws on this lovely hood ornament and I managed to break it. I'm very upset. I don't suppose it could be welded by somebody who knew what they were doing? Sigh.

That was probably used for a Bimini strap someone added on

Can I assume that my cadillac had no holes and no cleats drilled or mounted on the gunwales (apart from the bow cleat and the stearn "cleats)? And my plan is to fill those holes and not replace them unless you can tell me that "you're definitely going to wish you had one or two cleats mounted near the....". I see no photo evidence of them being original in the various magazine ads from back in the day.

I've had good luck with the home-made stuff, but it's immaterial with the 60 year old screws in my boat. More often than not they just snap off.
