XJ Cracked head...need help!

Alright so I live in Kodiak and am 90% sure my head is cracked. Put dye in the rad overflow tank and when I popped the oil cap off and looked in it was glowing like crazy!

I've contacted a few companies in the lower 48 and nobody will ship me a new/used head. Thinking of taking the ferry across and limping into anchorage to try and get it fixed.

Thoughts? Comments? Anyone in Kodiak? Help! oh, its my only car now, the CJ7 got left in the lower 48. Thanks.
