I would never have guessed you could arc weld under water, honestly. If someone had said it to me in the pub I would have thought they were daft :oops:

Have you ever tried using a hammer under water - it's bliddy difficult, you can't hit straight as the water forces it all ways except the one you want.

I worked as safety boat for welders perched at the top of 60 ft piles over the harbour - we got shocks from their cables running across wet pontoons so I wonder what proportion of underwater welders electrickery reaches the target.
