    If you don't mind me asking, what is the ballpark $$$ on the cutting and bending? I'm looking at the 21 foot cuddy as a build (cope design) and couldn't get "Real" estimates from Alaskan Copper and Brass on the cutting. Also, do you have a cut weight for the files. Thanks so much, and I look forward reading this build as it progress.
    And there are a few So CAL boys who appreciate a good plate boat, just not too many down this way.

    I called Alaskan copper and brass they quoted me 27k I used K&K industries in Bellingham it was 18k out the door super good people to deal with I think i was right around 5800 total weight plus I kept all the drop

    Call Grant at Wooldridge Boats (206) 722-8998. He built my 26' SS Pilothouse and is a pleasure to work with.
    They build a nice product been on two of them (really nice boats) I wanted to have a boat that was exactly the way I wanted it. I wanted a new project to keep me busy this year (Been planning it for two) so this worked out perfect

    Sweet that is how my boat rolled. Offered a used set from Defiance Marine. The Honda BF250's had 24 hours on them.

    Sorry haven't been able to get much done lately I did pick up a 15hp merc kicker just need to order controls for it. Had to switch out my SeaStar helms for verado helms (I have a SeaStar classic 1.7 tilt and cylinder new and cheap if anyone is looking) went and picked up my half pipe shears and hull stiffeners still have one to put on the port side lots and lots of welding to do but starting to look like a boat!
