    Has anybody here constructed an aluminun monohull sailboat, 40 to 45 feet? Is that really hard to build, I mean, weld aluminun and have a final look like if she had been professionally built?
    Any comments on designs, like Van de Stadt or others?

    Is definitely worth a look;
    - magazines with articles
    - log-in to their posting area- discusses best welders, paints, metals, designs, etc.
