Gonna get some pics up soon, wanted to get a few steps in before posting however. we made some test welds on the EMT and it looks as though we are going to be able to ARC weld it just have to keep moving off the puddle to keep from burning through. I will do a tutorial on this for guys without wire feed. We have wire Feed however ARC will be easier and faster for myself. Turn the welder down to 1.5 and run a 6011 rod. Bought some Colder running rods 6013s but havent tried them just yet.
Going to use 90s and some coupler to ease up haveing to bend it, added about 30-35 bucks to cost but a bender would have to of been rented or borrowed or guessed.
Going to run the top opening at 28" wide the length of the boat and build some PVC flip tops for it in sections ran through I bolts.
Cant wait to get pops and the Dog in it Come Nov. 24th... Pics to come in a few days.
