    Hello all,
    I am looking for solutions to an entire cover crack on my 1997 Sea Ray 190. I have read some posts from 8 years ago but nothing recent. Anyone know where to buy a new engine cover? Or had luck with fixing it? Any suggestions would be appreciated!!

    JB Weld is amazing stuff. Recently watched a youtube video where someone actually made a lawnmower engine's head out of the stuff just to see if it would stand up to the stresses. If I recall, he made the head from three tubes of JB Weld and ground it to shape, installed it on the motor, and ran it for one full hour without fail. Obviously it isn't meant for that, but it was amazing to see just how tough it can be. No affiliation to the product, just a thought for your situation...
