    Can someone please post some pics - or point towards some - that show what a building jig for a one-off aluminium runabout might look like?
    I expect the boat would be built upside down.
    I know they would vary from one builder / designer to the next, but any infor would be much appreciated...

    Like this, as seen being turned over and with the Jig underneath.
    It is just a simple steel frame work to build the boat to the exact dimensions of the boat, that is all.
