Very nice little boat. The aluminum is extremely practical and you'd never know she's 9 yrs old. Full time livaboard too![/img]
Yours Aye!

WOW, that really is nice looking. I would not thought of building in aluminum but it actually looks very good.
Isn't it amazing!! The person that never has the fortitude to pursue his own dreams, will be the first to try and discourage you from pursuing yours.

Aluminum is very nice looking BUT it is very expensive and complicated for a non professional builder to build in.
Based on my experience in 20 years on US Navy ships with aluminum superstructures it is not a building material for me.
Steel simply rusts away in a bad environment and you can stay on top of the problems. Aluminum is here today, gone in a week. Deteriation can move horizontally through the material with no indication on the outside only indication is 5 feet away. Using the highest quality alloys that money can buy the tax payers eating the bills.
