I have been researching custom aluminum boat builders along the West Coast and into BC for several years. I kept coming back to a local Alaskan builder. Alaska Offshore Marine and Glaciercraft. The fit and finish is second to none, plus I could see the progress in person. That was important to me since this is a once in a life time boat for my family and I. She is nearly completed. I am just waiting for the motors to be installed.
Boat in gig. All parts are cut on a computerized CNC router table. The sides are .19" and the bottom is .25"
Here is a pic with me standing on the bottom of the hull with the lead welder. Hopefully this is the only time I have to stand on this side of the boat!
A pic of the framing for the floor. There are three 135 gallon fuel tanks under there.
The cabin roughed in. I am 6'6" and am the shortest guy in the family, so the cabin is 6'10" at the aft sloping down to 6'7" at the helm.
