    Hi all. I just joined this forum and grew up boating but have a pretty low knowledge level when it comes to design and fabrication of boats. That being said, I have a custom steel fab shop and I'm interested in building a boat for personal use. I would love to do a new england style semi-displacement power boat eventually, but thought I should start with something smaller and simpler. I have been looking for plans for an aluminum center console somewhere in the range of 20', and have not found anything I'm excited about. Any suggestions on where to look or who to talk to? Thanks!

    Have a talk to Alidesigner (you might want to check my spelling) on this forum or go to his website.
    Great looking boats and has a design for a really nice walk around.
