Re: Steel boats - things to watch for?
A hammer and a centrepunch will find any thin spots. Whack any doubtful point with a centre punch, and if it doesn't dent severely, you have plenty of metal there. .
Wow I would have gone totally BATSHIT if anyone had used a centrepunch on my old steel boat. Breaking through the paint skin that I had so lovingly coddled over the years.
