Well done, Let's hope it stands up to the test of time.

Although you're out of warranty, I'd be tempted to let sternpower know of the fault, the porosity is plainly a manufacturing defect. Likely gas bubbles formed within the metal as it was poured into the mould.

Jwalker, that is exactly what I meant (bubbles in metal as it was poured) when I said bad casting during manufacturing process, just did not know to express myself better at that time.
And yes, I am tempted to let SternPowr know of the fault, although I am pessimistic of "gaining" anything after so many years.

Just to update that after 130 hours of boat operation this season, all is well and working properly, there are no leaks, nor water in oil. I would consider this fixing method confirmed if someone encounters similar problem (hopefully not). I hope it will last in following years, I will use it (as much as possible hopefully) and we shall see.

Well done and it's good to have you report back rather than leaving the thread open ended.
