anyone welded a cast eng block?

i'm looking into a boat that's very cheap but... the block has a 3" crack on a water jacket. I've been told nickel rod would work, I've heard people say that some of the weld jobs last for years. I have also heard that you have a snowball's chance in Iraq at making it last more than a year or two. Any opinions? thanks

I've never done any but check out www.locknstitch.com/castironwelding.htm for a tutorial on the subject.

I have done several of them and its a permanant repair. It is a bit tricky though to do correctly.
