trying to do some simple FEA

bow weldment.JPG

This is a multi body weldment for a sailboat. Just want to do make it a solid body so I can do a simple fea on it.

When I try to combine bodies I am getting the "unable to create this feature because it would result in zero-thickness geometry".

any help appreciated ....
