As a welder I’m always attracted to metal boats. And I pick mine up on Monday! One thing I’m thinking about a lot, as we will not have dock access with shore power, is how I can weld on board. I’m thinking that I need to either get a chubby genset or somehow rig one of my main engines to become a genset that can push 10k or so watts.
One thing I’ve noticed on other metal boats I’ve owned is a curious phenomenon where engine noise travels through water and transduces through the hull creating a strange sounds. It’s quite strong and can be noticed even from boats up to a mile away!
