I have used the alumaloy before with good results. Some basic gas welding skills will be helpfull. Be sure to clean and prep area well. If you are using on a boat hull be very carefull with the heat as thin alumanum tends to warp easy. If this doesnt sound like something you can tackle check with the local welding shops most weld aluminum and will likley do a better job at a reasonable price.

Try a local welding supply store. Those alloys work very well but they are not as strong as a TIG welded repair, and once you tin the area it is next to impossible to TIG weld later.

The last time I bought a pound of the rods I got them at F.F. That was a few years back before I got the spool gun for my hobart.
