    Does anyone know of a welded aluminum jon boat kit, or plans with cnc cut files?

    Some of the Garvey designs would be easy enough to do plate development for. You would still have to do the scantlings and interior structure.

    Try these guys:

    Its more of a skiff design than a jon boat but it might work for ya. They sell a 12' and a 16' version.

    The only thing I don't like about it is that it calls for the use of oversize sheets of Al. (I think 5' X 20') I know that it makes for less welding and a fairer build, but I have a TON of 4' X 8' sheet laying around.

    Its a good looking boat though...
