    Cupronickle alloys are about the best boat building material there is. Strength and weld-ability is about equal to steel and also strength. The major benefits of a copper/nickle alloy are two : A, it is strong, but remains ductile,, If you strike a rock, the hull will first bend and may well remain water tight. Repair material and a welder can fix the vessel anywhere in the world. And B. It does not corrode in salt water and needs zero bottom paint to avoid bottom growth and barnacles. You need never paint your vessel. It is expensive,,, but does pay for itself in tug boats and rough tow craft, vessels that bump and rub against something when they work.

    Something similar that I would like to see is a copper aluminium "DAMASCUS" made in the same way. the aluminium however should diffuse into the copper forming aluminium bronze (a bright gold color) which assuming the copper is thick enough should form alternating bands with unalloyed copper. Might need to be done in an oxygen free environment though... maybe I can form the initial stack and get it welded together in my vacuum chamber and send it to you for the rest of the forging?

      philosophical inquirer Day ago

      As nice as the final nickel-copper damascus looks, my thoughts are that its too prone to oxidation and discoloration - how can this be prevented, otherwise you might make a nice sword or whatever - but the copper patterns will just go black and green in no time.

    I wonder how a copper and zinc damascus might look? Would the edges between the different metals alloy, so that you get thick waves of copper and zinc with thinner waves of brass along the edges?
