When I took my welding course to complete my degree in Industrial Maintenance and Mechanics I had problems with poor penetration, until my instructor explained to me that my welds should barely be above the surface not standing proud. Even though both sides are welded, you can see seepage marks around the outside of the welds around the boat where water has gotten in and leaked back out. This is noticeable in the bow area in the pics. It's clearly a sign of pin holes allowing water to flow between the steel plates due to poor penetration. It's like a little tunnel between the plates. This is what can cause rust along weld lines on/in steel boats. You have probably seen it before. I've seen it a lot in quick build barge hulls. If you've never experienced this on your boats you've built, then you are a more competent welder than the person that welded that boat together.
Moving on.

I just don't understand how you see all that from those poor pictures but so be it. If it was MIG, it could easily be a purposeful build up

I started looking at this thread on a lark. But dang! It's turning dangerous. With boats like this, I could do something foolish.
