i build aluminum internal floating roofs inside storage tanks. the kind of tanks you see in a refinery or tank farm. welding is a small part of job. very dirty and very hot inside. like a giant pizza oven. most of the welding i do is on tank roof. been doing this off and on for 25 years. ive taken a couple 2 year vacations. always gone away from home. wouldnt wish it on anybody.
