You might be able to get by with jbweld and loctite. The way to fix it properly would be to take it to boat propeller shop (or someplace else that does a lot of aluminum repair). Those guys are good, and they could fix something like that really easily. After the weld, you will have to run a tap through it, or maybe put in a helicoil.
