Our primary rowing coach boat (no fancy smancy rich mans sport in Oamaru) was a large wide aluminium dinghy, not sure of the length but basically an old style wide riveted alloy rowboat with a wide beam, but with a 15hp motor and due to its use as a coach boat it had been set up with forward steering. With the 8hp on the same thing and two people it used to be good sport to see if we could leave them behind when in the 8. I am not sold on cats for my requirements but I like the look of your boat,sort of thing I am after but there is no mention of kits on his site or even mono hulls? Yea , I want to build a kit , not buy a finished boat and fit a motor or I might as well buy a finished boat and fit a motor. It is the combination of these three things that has opened up the market for alloy kit set boats. However, then the skins have to be built up in parts adding resin and glues and building the skin up layer by layer which is very labour intensive and the cost of the materials can be quite expensive.
The availability of single-phase inverter welders for aluminium that are very cost effective has made building an aluminium boat feasible for home builders.
DIYNO Kitset Boats sell all their kits with a female building jig to build the boat the right way up. With the CNC cut parts, if the panels are accurately tacked together with the edges touching then the cut files themselves will ensure the boat is fair and true. There is a third way of building the boat the right way up but without a jig, simply relying on the cut parts to hold the shapes. Nelson based Ace Engineering are another player in the kit set alloy boat market and have a different approach. Pro-Kit kit set pontoon boats are built using a simple MDF jig cradle to hold the pontoon sections in place at the correct angle to form the ring and everything falls into place after this. If you have a solid week to put into the boat, you can work on it in the shed and then store it outside until you have another time period allocated to work on it again.
RSD systems have one of the largest range of alloy kits sets available in New Zealand with over 35 different models available in 4.5m to 16m, all designed by Robson Design.
RSD alloy kits are quite comprehensive and have been developed by the designers who have worked as boat builders so have been able to create very builder friendly concepts for the boats with emphasis to produce boats that do not require specialist boat building skills, just good engineering and sheet metal skills. Robson Design can also custom design or modify an existing boat in its RSD range to suit client’s personal requirements or arrange construction for a partially built or completely turnkey vessel for any of the kits by one of the affiliated quality builders throughout the world. While this does not mean that 5052 cannot be used, there may be some applications wheres 5052 is the right choice, but the welded strength of the alloy needs to be taken into consideration. It looked silly because it was such a small boat to be set up that way but it was extremely capable.
GST + packaging & freightOur Freedom Kit Boats includes all of the alloy plate required to build the boat, unlike some other kit boats on the market that only include the exterior shell.
The labour, to build an aluminium kit set boat, is hugely reduced by the fact that that every part is already cut out.
This means that the parts will lay on the surface of a cone (or usually multiple cones) and cylinders all joined together along a common radian or straight line.
In days gone by plywood flat pack kits were popular but these days aluminium is more common.
The traditional way is to stand the frames upside down on a strong back or jig and build  the boat inverted. This is also CNC cut and slots together. The reason they use a female jig, according to Jim Pauling of DIYNO Kitset Boats, is it makes the set-up very easy. The structure is all CNC cut as well so these effectively fair the hull skins by default when they are set in place.
With this process, it is vital that all the parts may fit together, and that you don’t get any twisting as the build process proceeds.


While I believe it requires more skill to do it this way it shows there is more than one way to skin a cat (or a monohull)”, says Jim. Jason Elvines owner of Ace Engineering, builders of the DNA range of boats and Pro-Kit kit set boats, says he got into the kit set market after initially been approached by an oversea’s customer already manufacturing boats, who wanted to enter the pontoon boat building market and also to change the look of their monohulls.
The monohull builds are built right way up and do not require a jig, just a cradle to setup and hold the hull sections level. In these cases, we usually pre fold all the panels ready for them to begin to manufacture immediately and even include windscreens”. Prokits hard top range comes standard with curved glass windscreens, which also provide a structural element to the hardtop design and cut down on the fabrication required in window pillars and roof structure as well as adding aesthetic appeal to the boat.
Some home builders simply have always had a desire to build their own boat and an alloy kit set gives them the opportunity to accomplish it in the least amount of time.
Robson Design was one of the first to produce full CNC cut alloy kits, supplying some of New Zealand’s top alloy production boat builders over the years.
The cost of 5052 is considerably cheaper than 5083 and therefore tempting to substitute for 5083.
Steering from the rear make the back heavy, it pushes more water and takes more horse power to pop it out onto the plane. The opposition did have a 12' Parkercraft set up like yours, but they were useless and couldn't out pace a tadpole. The other way is to find a local alloy boat builder and get one built to your spec and than do as I did doing all the fitting up , engine mounting etc yourself. While drawing on computers is not as enjoyable as lofting pencil lines on paper, the reality is that the information, which can be generated from a 3D digital model far, exceeds what can be pulled off a 2d pencil drawing and builders demand and indeed expect this level of information these days. These parts then fit perfectly together like a jigsaw puzzle which takes away the highly skilled job of firstly lofting the boat and subsequently accurately cutting the parts to the lofted lines. The key is that while the panel may look like it has curvature in both directions, at some point the surface must have a straight line representing the radians of the cone or cylinder. This technology coupled with CAD design and CNC cut parts means that each and every part should be touching.
It takes skill to set up frames upside down the traditional way and if not done accurately then the hull panels will not fit at a later date.
For one thing, you don’t get showered in molten metal but also you have gravity working for you as you weld. Along the way, they develop some great new skills. Some builders decide to build an alloy kit set because they can get a better boat than what is on offer to them elsewhere and building it themselves allows them to customise the layout exactly to their requirements. Secondly how long will it take to build or how long will the wife’s car have to sit outside? Another great advantage of using alloy is it can be put outside without deteriorating. The RSD models available as kits are all based on proven boats in operation throughout the world. However, 5052 should never be substituted for 5083 if the boat has been designed and engineered for 5083.
Sectioned wooden floors which can be easily lifted at sea, where I can store nets and other gear, fish, etc.
If the cut files have been generated accurately, all the builder needs to do is match each part to the next and the boat should come out very fair and true. These can be purchased cheaply from most hardware stores and once again are very handy to have even once the boat is finished. It is easier to see the curves and check for fairness on a convex curve as opposed to a concave curve. By using the female building jig, the hull skins are the first piece of the puzzle so you know that everything else has to fit if the skins have been pulled down into the jig correctly and aligned with the corresponding edges. As the boat is being welded, very high heat is put into the materials in the area of the weld.


This method is important to get things right from the beginning as it sets up the accuracy for the entire build.
Designers of kit set boats need all the information they can from you, as a huge amount of design work goes into accounting for all the weights and the positions of weights of all the various parts. It is a lot of money and hard work to achieve the desired outcome so choosing the right design from the start is vital.
We have had potential suppliers tell us in the past that 5052 is just the same as 5083, just not marine certified.
There is no excuse why any builder should not be able to produce a very professional product, assuming that the design of the boat is good and the cut files are accurate and of professional quality. Some composite kits are developed for boats with compound curvature, but this can only be done with components that work together to make up the skins. Very light and very stiff, but to make it durable it needs to be resinned, maybe glassed and painted. It is hard to weld gaps in aluminium but if the cut files are accurate and the joints are tight, and you are using a good modern welder then the job is very much simpler and the finished product of much better quality. The other advantage is that when you lay the sheets you have gravity working on your side and it may be easier to pull the panels down over the framework as opposed to pulling the bottom sheets into a female jig.
If you are welding down into the panel, then gravity helps keep the molten metal where it should be.
Jason adds that if his clients follow the instructions, building the boat is a very straightforward process.
Changing these can have a big impact on the performance and handling of the boat so it is vital to work with the designer. For example a fibreglass cloth can be laid over pretty much any surface even if it has compound curves as can core materials that are made up of multiple small squares or cores that are planked up in thin strips like a cedar core. Resin, glass and paint add a considerable amount of financial cost and to do well takes many,many hours of hard laborious work. When you sit a welding ticket, you are certified for the welding position that you sat in the test. You can imagine if you are welding on one side of the boat, the material there is hot and expanding while the other side of the boat is cool. Check that the material supplied in the kit is the material specified in the design and sourced from a reputable supplier.
So building the boat the right way up in a female jig, he believes is the easiest way to get a good result particularly for non- professionals or first-time builders. This puts stress on the boat that may not necessarily be balanced at any point in time. The weld schedule tries to spread the welds evenly around the boat to reduce the effect of this, but there are limitations.
Even though all the parts of the hull may still fit, the twist may not be noticed until it is too late.
If you do want to paint, it is a far less arduous task than working from a fibreglass or wooden base. With a female jig, once the skins are laid, all the structure is tacked in place before major welding commences holding everything in place as it tries to expand and contract.
This also means that all parts fit together and there is no need to then individually modify and fit each part.
