I was able to repair a couple leaks in my jonboat, but it took a bunch of experimenting. My brother has been extremely successful with aluminum wire in his wirefeed welder. Thinking maybe I need to buy a portable TIG when I retire and learn to use it.
Do you know what wire size he used and was it a regular MIG set up, or a spoolgun? I have a spoolgun, but wouldn't go near a hull with it unless it was around 1/8" thick or thicker.
