Well, with all this talk about metal boats, were I to build in metal (I probably wouldn't- I'd stick with wood). I'd go with a cupronickel hull- There's a couple out there that seem to have been problem free.

But if new: Angelique hull, balata frames and keel, wana deck, all monel fastened. Yawl rigged with aluminum sticks- probably go a little smaller too -high 30's LOA.
