Re: Sailing with a welder aboard?

Getting a little inverter stick welder is pretty much a no brainer. Cheap and light and small. It will fix the bracket or help you make a special tool. I've welded stuff to the deck with it. It doesn't like any wind, too marginal.

Carry the Miller? That takes some thought.

Re: Sailing with a welder aboard?

I was reading threw and found this thread, even if it is old. When it comes to welding remember it is a perishable skill, I burn 10 lbs of rod a week on average but only use the tig every few months, I spend a little time getting the skill back everyone to make my welds semi-presentable with the tig. I used a ZENA welded once and it worked great, 1/8" 7018.
