            On a serous note

            With out the Smart donkey reply,

            there was a guy here a couple years ago that built a semi-flat bottom boat about 12-14 ft out of aluminum. He did a great job.

            Boat hulls are actually a complex shape, in the class of airplane wings, maybe even more complex as they always curve in multiple directions.

            I would suggest that a place to start would be find a boat you like and start from there.

            Maybe as thought you may consider a steel frame with wood covering as wood is much easier to shape. With steel you'll have the age old rust issue though.
