      Hi Andy,

      She’s a beauty! Your jig produces very fair lines.

      After fit-up, do you weld the inside seams, back chip the outside and then weld the outside seams?

      Do you mig both seams, or mig the inside and then tig the outside? I’ve seen it done both ways.

      Please send more photos as you finish the boat.

      Thanks, -Pacwa

        summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

            The hull is fabricated up side down, the seams are welded both sides with a MIG, in an ideal world it would be TIGged on the outside but I consider distortion and speed the main drawbacks with this method. As this is the first of hopefulyl many, I have no doubt the processes will change as the project evolves and I become more familiar with the ins and outs of the vessels. Just goes to show, no matter how many boats you have worked on in the past, you feel as though you are starting green when you mess around with a new design! I'll post more pics as it progresses.
