We used aluminum, therefore, our price of around $1000 is obsolete. If you can measure and cut, there's no reason you can't. Of course, I say that now after watching my Dad with most of the hard work, but it's true...you can do whatever you want. If you need to keep costs down, use wood.
very nice boat....I wish I was skilled enough to start a project like that. How much did that project run ? just and estimation?
This was really the first time I had ever worked with aluminum. If you can search scrap yards and get it at a decent price, the next step is to either rivet yourself or find someone who is willing to weld on aluminum.
Other than that, let your imagination fly.
