I have a 12 foot welded flatbottom Jon boat that I purchased used ten years ago. I have used this boat at least twice a month since and have never had a problem with the welds. I have never owned a riveted boat so have no first hand knowledge as to the quality of such. I have not used a motor on my boat, we paddle, so that may have made a difference as to the abuse.
both are good depending on the size and application of boat rivets however do move and pop and become loose with age and use
Better in what way? Rivited joints are generally cheaper while welded joints are generally stronger.
The chasis is usually both bolted and welded and even riveted in the trucks.
It takes a lot more stress and force to break a weld than it does to pop a rivet.

The majority of boat props are aluminum. You can't solder it, it has to be welded or heli arced.
Boats from different manufacturers are different. These are all 14 foot boats. A Sears Gamefisher comes in a 168 lbs. This is about as lite as they come. A welded John (squared off front, flat bottom) boat by Gizzley weighs 408 lbs. A riveted John boat by Grizzley weighs in a 113 lbs. A Tracker model weighs 480 lbs. A bass boat sold by this dealer weighs 683 lbs. You need to look at a specific boat and ask what that boats weighs.
The iceberg did not make any holes in Titanic. The impact separated the plates by popping the rivets (which were riveted together, not welded) and the water breached through.
Prior to 1941 they were built from riveted steel. From 1941 thru 1945 they were cast steel and welded steel. From the Korean War thru Vietnam they were cast (with some welding) steel. With the one exception of the Vietnam era M551 Sheridan tank which was welded ALUMINUM (hull only). The Sheridan's turret was welded steel (and the gun was steel). Post Viet War US tanks are composite (classified) armor with steel exteriors (welded).
Neither, it was riveted together. Initially the pieces were assembled in the factory using bolts, and then were replaced one by one with heated rivets, which contracted during cooling creating a very tight fit. Only a third of the 2,500,000 rivets used in the construction of the Tower were inserted directly on site as preassembled and riveted pieces were built off site.
I was riveted to my father's agony.

Several different parts suppliers carry replacement panels that will either need to be pop-riveted or welded into place to repair rusted ones. Search the internet & Jeep forums & I bet you will find some documentation about someone who has done it.
Sheet steel is cut and pressed into shape. Panels are then spot welded and glued together. Other metal items may be moulded, by heating the metal into a liquid and then pouring into pre-formed moulds. These items can then be screwed or riveted together.
What have you welded ?
It is called aluminum welding. Aluminum can be TIG welded, the most common method, or oxy-fuel welded, or stick welded, or MIG welded.
