I have a tracker V175WT aluminum deep V boat. While trailering it last week I accidentally hit a severe bump in the road at about 40 mph. The boat and trailer bounced hard and in the process broke the winch attachment ring from the aluminum keel of the boat. It left a rectangular hole where the ring was welded on. How big a problem do I have? Can it be repaired?
