Metal fatigue, welds

In my research for building a steel boat, I hear that the death knell for a steel boat is, after corrosion, fatigue.

I came across this process and thought it might be of interest to anyone with welds and worrying about fatigue. Basically a peening process to treat weld roots.

Powered by compressed air 6 to 8 Bar, progress speed 3mm to 5mm per second, almost as handy as a weld stick/nozzle for access in confined spaces.
