First Boat and welding experience.

My first ever boat was purchased in 2012 which was a 1982 Quintrex 4.4 runabout. I didn't have any experience with boats prior to this and just wanted something to do up and go fishing in. 
The boat required alot of patching work to remove holes made by accessories over the years plus needed new hand/bow rails and more.
I purchased a  Lincoln 180c mig with a spool gun. First time welding aluminium and although the set up I had was problematic it got the job done.
With an upgrade of much better welders and a bit more play time I  feel I am much more comfortable starting this new boat build.
