Does anyone have any advice in the welding (either stick or mig) of mild steel to wrought iron. Specifically, I am looking for help in rod or wire selection. A 6013 rod works ok when welding on top of the iron, but is not working when welding wrought iron to mild steel. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions.

Also, would low carbon steel be easier to weld to wrought iron than mild steel?

I am trying to repair a 1887 wrought iron riveted tugboat hull. There is a website at with pictures of the restoration process.
