A Boldwater!?
I like that. Or W.C.B.(Walker custom boats)
The beauty of Aluminum is its custom ability. That’s why it has dominated the market of late. We are going glass hull and aluminum house. Best of both worlds

Fantastic, its a good running hull. I have run two. iF you follow the old school layup schedule, she will be heavy , but you most likely know that. What a great venture you are embarking on :-)

The way you run boats though it will be an interesting challenge to see whether you crave the welds or rip the fast eta through the deck at the connecting point!

Nice. Surprised this hasn't already taken off. It seems like it's the best of everything. Keeps the low maintenance of the aluminum above the waterline and gets rid of any corrosion concerns below the water.

Good luck.

Damn that's a pretty boat.
How do you make the aluminum to glass connection? Bolt it to a wood/glass combing or something.
Not 100% sure yet. The house will have a flange on the inside. We know there will be some extra meat laminated into the deck structure as well as a glassed mounting pad laminated to the deck that is the footprint of the cabin. It will be thru bolted probably at a minimum of every foot

Patrick,

Seems to me, I recall that other builders have either slotted, or oversized mounting holes in aluminum structure to allow for thermal expansion (different coefficients), and used either a rubber or polyurethane gasket to bed the house. I’m sure you’re aware ... interested to see what you come up with.
