Custom Fabricated Airboat

Todd Gunn built this airboat from scratch. It is powered by a 4.3L marine engine and Whirl Wind brand propeller and has a top speed of 42 mph on water. The airboat is currently being tested by police officers in the area where Todd lives.

Todd used a variety of Lincoln Electric equipment to do the welding: Invertec® V205-T AC/DC TIG welder and POWER MIG® 255 wire feeder welder equipped with a spool gun for welding aluminum (current model is POWER MIG® 256).

Todd said, "The Lincoln Invertec® V205-T AC/DC has been the best investment I ever made. The expertise and quality in this little machine just blew me away."
