Welcome Csaw, hope you do well at the shipyard.

I'm going to move your topic over to the stick/arc welding category where you will get more views and plenty of comments I'm sure. :)
Go break something, then you can weld it back the right way.

First off how did your test go? Second I recommend putting a little weave motion or upside down U motion to your beads. it helps me to keep in time and the weld tends to come out a little flatter without the hump in the middle like yours did here.
