Re: Scrambler update

Maiden Voyage a few days ago. This was today. Thanks for all the help and suggestions. I learned a lot.. With the 60 / 40 murc jet I get up to about 32 mph ground speed full throttle and trimed out. Love not worrying about prop in shallows... Take Care - :o http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8046/8084860...

Re: Welding panels before or after?

That is a great question. I just finished my scrambler, and was new to welding aluminum too. I hauled full 20 ft sheets across town on top of my pickup. I would think you would butt weld them to size before...you need the full length so you can tack weld front and curv it from front to back.... Wayne

Good times. Thanks for the connection on the Zolatone 20. I found on the link a distributor just a few...

Re: MIG welding Aluminum

Hi Kevin,

Very helpful thank you. Although my welds do not have the years and hours behind them they are getting better as my project goes along. I am sure this will be very helpful to many for years to come.
