Fuel tank leak

I need a recommendation for a boat yard in the general area of Norfolk, Va. to the upper Chesapeake that can look at a weeping weld leak on a fuel tank and recommend repair options.
Thanks for the help.

When it comes to metal work Howdy Bailey in Little Creek is one of the best in the world.

Repair option #1 re-weld. Place an appropriate amount of dry ice in fuel tank then weld. I have done it on petroleum barges before, its an old Texas ship yard trick. The dry ice creates a CO2 cover over fuel and a displaces all 02.
