Metal boats are easy to customize and can withstand abuse that would destroy hulls made of any other material. Find out what it takes to build and outfit your own steel or aluminum yacht for much less than the cost of a custom fiberglass or wooden boat.
Scott's abundantly illustrated guide explains how to use welding equipment, how to keep electrolysis and corrosion at bay, clever ways to improve boat safety and comfort, how to decide which tasks you can tackle and which are best hired out, and more.
Whether you're an ambitious amateur or an accomplished metalworker, Metal Boats will show you how to make your dream boat a reality.
'...a concise guide to building or buying aluminum and steel craft. Scott dispassionately explains how to compensate for the metal's liabilities while taking advantage of its notable assets. Scott takes the reader logically from the basics about material qualities and how to prevent problems like electrolysis, through the entire building process. He deciphers some drawings and goes step-by-step through building the hull, installing machinery, insulation interior, then provides sources for designs and designers.'
