I’m think it’s 5356.
Good choice. It's not as easy to run as 4043 but better mechanicals if it works well.

Watch for longitudinal cracking with the 5356 on any butt joints or outside fillets, if you see that it's becoming a problem run more gas or consider 4043.

Really excited to see this thing come together!

Awesome! How thick on you bottom, transom, and sides?

You will be able to hand that down to your grandchildren!

Curious to how you decided on the thickness of your plate. Did that come with your plans or did you just choose on your own? Mostly curious about the bottom and sides.

Really nice workmanship!!

Looks great!
If those Flex-Seal freaks see this they'll want you to finish the bottom with a front door screen.
Covered in FS of course...

Can't wait to see those welds! I expect stacks of dimes knocked over.

I dabble with the TIG welder every once in a while. But you wouldn't want to TIG weld that whole bad boy.

The thickness of the plates all come in the design plans. Everything is spec’d out in the plans. Nathan does a great job answering any questions throughout the process.

Thanks for the compliment.
