You Won't be able to bend it mate, you could have a go at heating it up but I don't think you'll get any good results

You could try heating it up, I don't reckon you'll be able to do it though, need formers and guide I'm afraid

I'm no expert on ali (I've done plenty of galv & stainless) but I'd say it depends on the grade of ali & how tight you're bending. If you keep to 135deg or more, you should be ok. Less than that & it might start to fold on the inside of the bend, possibly crack on the outside. Suck it & see Have you got some spare material you can experiment with? If I was hiring one (a bender; oooeeerrr matron), I'd take a length to the hire shop & try it first.(fnaar fnaar)

My opinion is that you will need the former and guide to get it right, without getting into compression and stretching of tube, it will flatten, I can see from your pics that you want a couple of bends at around 60 and 30 degree.
Why don't you wait till I get back and come down here and form them up properly

Now that's an excellent idea

Cheers sir !

Was there any particular reason you didn't want to take it to Mike Whittam who is possibly the best marine laminator in the country, if not certainly one of them.

I think a lot of Ed ( and his craftsmanship ) and truly mean no offence by this, but if I wanted a new transom put in I'd go to a man what builds boats for a living and has done it many times.

However you pays your money and you takes your choice!

p.s this is one of the most difficult posts I've had too post as I'm looking for a good deal on graphics and signs for our new units. Anybody know if Mike Whittam has got a box of crayons
