Location: London, UK Small steel boat Hi, I have a number of pieces of steel salvaged from a houseboat remodelling job I did. This boat is biger than 12 feet, but You can have problems with wight if You want exactly 12 feet. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
Since I have a welder and rather enjoy working in steel, I often pondered how realistic a small steel boat would be. I'm mostly throwing this on here because there isn't a lot of info on small steel boat building when I was looking, but I think its a very easy and quick way to go if you are already proficient in steel fab. All I needed was some indication I wasn't totally out to lunch and some baseline for material thickness's, and that thread provided both. Steel also solves the suitable space problem, I can't glass in my basement with out making the house uninhabitable for about a week, but I can weld to my hearts content without so much as boo out of my wife about smells. So spent some time with hulls, spat the final version out as dxf, exchanged some beers with the cad guy at work for some drawings of the chines split and nested onto 4x8 sheets. Due to the accuracy of the cuts, the hull went together amazingly easily, everything matched up bang on.

The highest point of the hull (bow) should just get out the door without removing the actual door. Location: halifax Seems there is basic boat info missing on the first post. Freeboard of about 12" loaded with 1300lb (incl hull weight), total submersion displacement was almost 3000lbs. Intention is to be pure displacement hull 5-7kn for leisurly exploring lakes and sheltered coast, power is an old 1965 evinrude fishermen 5.5 I found for next to nothing, needs some paint but ticks like a clock.
Thanks for posting, looks interesting and will be very educational to learn what you'll do about coating and finish? Kenai, AK Keep in mind this is more of a proof of concept to get an idea of how hard it is to build something like this before tackling something a bit bigger.
The boat I want to build (and this skiff), and you might appreciate this being from AK, I'd like them to have mild ice capability and not to sink at the first sign of a rock. Mild steel's mill scale, intact in your photos, actually promotes rusting in any dampness so getting it off is considered by most steel builders as paramount.


I do appreciate metal boats' rock and ice resistance, but all of mine are welded aluminum and lasting lifetimes was one of their main reasons for being built. Skiffs don't scale to larger boats unless the modeling displacement ratios were observed; so, while a interesting exercise in skiff building she has no proportional relevance to a larger boat's level of effort or even the methods of building. Then joint preparation in Al is critical, how does that work for the hobby builder that might weld for a night or two then spend a week hanging dry wall before getting back to it? The other thing that puts me off on ally is working in engineering, I know the stuff has serious implications if not designed properly and will fail catastrophically over time if you are not careful. It seems you'll need to put in a little self ed' time on metals' surface prep so I'll just make a quickie summary of the two different materials not trying to give a full review. Aluminum can be cleaned of mill scale before welding by simply brushing with SS brushes that are not used on steel to avoid leaving ferrous particulate to bubble up in the alum weld.
Alum welding is typically done at 3-10x the speed of steel welds so it does take a bit of practice.
Location: halifax I will precede this by saying I'm not a pro welder, just some dude at home with a little Lincoln that likes making stuff. As far as ally weld, I've never done it, so I imagine there will be a bit of a learning curve there. The few sticks will spring that small section material uniformly and then you can tack both sides with a cold bend, helps to keep shapes this small fair. As to stiffening the bow, by tacking the bar(s) behind the topsides at the stem, transverse, you'd get lots more stiffness without any external doublers. I've never tried this size boat in steel so it's interesting to compare it to an aluminum build of similar size and relatively similar shape.
Boat building, one of the oldest branches of engineering, is concerned with constructing the hulls of boats and, for sailboats, the masts, spars and rigging..

That is always the issue with thinner steel and moves most people to aluminum in this range of welded skiff because most often the coating process brings costs exceeding the lighter metal.
Most often a plywood or plastic skiff of this size would just slide up on ice, rocks or even the beach if hard aground on any of those surfaces. Flux core on the other hand burns through almost anything and gives you a good penetrated weld. Flexing and vibrations in a steel hull are fine unless you exceed the yield strength, then it bends a bit, however in Al it is not.


This is embarrassing- an otherwise high quality builder not cleaning the metal before welding(!) and putting out highly porous welds! But good news is that Dave Gerr has a good book on boat strength that gives a good set of RoT regarding design of aluminum boats. I agree though you shouldn't do it if you want a clean weld, I did some experiments on some hot rolled angle, and yeah the part of the joint where the scale wasn't removed (T joint for example), lots or porosity and generally a crappy weld. I was more talking about mild surface rust that appears if you leave it for a while and come back to weld it a few weeks later. I was a bit worried I wouldn't be able to get a clean kink free radius using a manual hydraulic pipe bender, let alone two identical ones. A curved stem in profile is somewhat more attractive to my eye and every bit as strong; surely?

All in its over 5 sheets, could fit on 4, but wanted the extra for bits here and there if I needed it (decks etc). Either way I'm not too worried about weight, in someways the heavier it is the smoother the ride will be. I still need to work out how to feel comfortable sizing Al frames etc to not spend the entire time wondering when they are going to fatigue on me.
Again for experiment to see how far you can push it, I took some rusty old painted angle and just welded it, as long as the wire hit something to start the arc, it put in a weld, not the prettiest, but it held (angle bent before weld failed in my crude test).
The cost of the cutting was very reasonable, based on the price I would have paid for 5 uncut sheets, and the discount the laser cutting guy gets for the material, the cutting was almost free.
By grooving the oxide film it will break up in tiny platelets and be blown off by the near plasma heated argon flooding the weld puddle. It has to go up one floor through a 6x8 shaft (that used to be stairs) and out a 32" door.
