    Are you going to do a mock up keel or straight to the alloy?

    I was going to bend up a flat on edge and tack it bow and stern and a few props inbetween for something to lay a pattern against and cut/trim/cut/trim etc till I have a hull shape/pattern I am happy with then into the Alloy sheet.

    It will be variable dead rise as with the reverse chine it is effectively a flat hull at the stern, how much it will vari will be look and see at the time as doing a variable naturally has the bow higher on the plane due to the diverging lines of the keel and chine and I donot want the bow to ride so high as to limit visibility.

    Il mig the hull to the pontoons if I can get the 1mm wire program to work on the pulse mig,I wanted to tig the pontoons because I can guarentee gas tight without testing and they are a bit thin to mig and end up with a nice result.

    They are some of my dead helmets...I started saving them up a while back.

    Since it's your first boat build and as long as you finish it, you could keep the name simple so you can remember it "VEITNAMCAN"

    Looking good VC.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Shit no! Very bad idea.
    They are/will be sealed cavity with a very small bung (6mmbolt) that will basically never come out unless welding on the pontoon (so they don't blow up with the air expansion from the heat)

    You may wish to say why you don't want to ( sweating, corrosion, weight up top due to water, etc...)

    What about that 2 pack closed cell poly urethane expanding stuff ?
