Building an aluminium boat...

... Maybe RIB-like, maybe not.

I have had some spare marine grade ali knocking around for ages, so I finally got around to doing something with it. Only about 3m long but very heavy guage - a sort of armoured dinghy.

The dilema is, I was thinking of adding tubes of some sort. Probably not really a RIB, but it would look sort of tubey.

Any suggestions, other than get back to work and so something useful?

You have been peeking! I supose if it all goes wrong, it will make a great powered wheel barrow.
