You’re not welding if you don’t set yourself on fire once in a while.

Once in a while? So needing an assigned fire putter-outter means I’m an over achiever!

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

Burning flesh is nature’s way of telling you to stop unless you have a really good bead going.

and when you have a good bead going you just need to convince yourself it is BBQ you smell

Realised overnight that if I add a couple of fixings to the aft frame now it will make welding a lot easier in the future. So it all comes apart again after work.

This is my first big welding project and first time welding sheet. My finishing expectations have rapidly gone from tidy to tidy workboat to work boat to I hope it floats.

To the designer, my sincerest apologies for the sacrilege i am creating.

I am NOT a welder but one of the biggest problems I have seen is trying to weld thin plate and not have it distort. That is one reason guys around here tend to use heaver plate...........well and maybe they are not so good as they think they are :doh:
