    If you could find them would you really trust them enough to pay for the materials?

    We sell CNC Cutting files at good prices and allow an unlimited number of builds.

    I designed a line of dory style boats for plywood construction. They would be easy to make in metal I believe but I really don’t know what you would need for bracing. Aluminium doesn’t have the same inherent stiffness as plywood and I’m betting it would need more frames. Plans are free, PM me if your interested. The boat in my photo here is the 16' rowing version.

    I should have asked... How big a boat do you want to build, my plans go from 14 to 20 ft.
