    Looks like it will be WAY underpowered with ONLY a 454 in it.

    I have plans to build a 17 ft jet sled. I'm not going to start it until I'm comfortable welding alum. I just bought a miller 252, and I'm really trying to decided if I should just buy the 30A spoolgun? Or step up to the push pull gun?

    I have been welding aluminum with my 180 and spoolgun 100, for a couple of years. Obviously I just stepped it up with the 252!

    After building your airboat, that is really close to a jet sled. What would you recommend?

    By the way that thing is awesome, I hope my duck boat turns out half as nice as yours.

    Thanks, think I'm going with the spoolgun. Then the next purchase is the 280 hopefully if it ever comes out? Going to Tig all welds that will be visible. I have been spending time at a local aluminum boat builder here in Idaho really looking at how they put them together. The are using 350p with spoolgun and Dynasty 350's.
