    In my opinion, as it is posed this question, there is no reasonable answer. It would be necessary to study the boat's SOR to answer properly.

    Best? No, unless best has something to do with cost. This can only be a troll post, really, hallmarked by the stupid URL included.

    But hey! I'm a Croat so I have to answer!

    It depends on what the boat is intended to do. Try my book, "Boat building with Aluminum" by Stephen F. Pollard for a good general description of small welded aluminum boats.

    mrdrot asked a question but did not want a reply. Just wanted to advertise his company.

    Your post was fine Steve -- thank you.

    He was addressing the original poster mrdrot who didn't reply after his original, extremely broad "question" (or statement?) which might have only been to place that link in the original post.
