The trailer bunks and side rails were pine wood not treated lumber. They rotted in 5 years.

Hey dick smack, the majority of alum. fishing boats are indeed welded together using the M.I.G. process and a spool gun. It’s fast, economical and produces acceptable results for the application. The T.I.G. process has its place, but it’s not necessary or cost effective in this application. I encourage you to take a tour of the welding production area of a alum. boat mfg. some time, it’s impressive and educational.

dick smack says:

Yes but they’re arc welded. TIG. Maybe a slip o the tounge on Mr Engineers part.

dick smack says:

“Welded on the inside with MIG welds??? This guy is an engineer??

How will this boat handle light saltwater fishing. Say near kelp beds in CA?
