Mark, whether you agree with Brent's views or not (or like his boats for that matter), at least give the man some credit for knowing a thing or two about steel boat building. One of the things that drew me to his work was the ability for an amateur builder to get a fair hull (with nice compound curves and a short chine under the waterline) using simple techniques and tools. If you're interested in home-building in metal, it really is worth getting his book or checking out the video on origami building.
