Re: Frameless steel construction
I have to say I'm a big fan of Brent's boats. If you don't know his designs, it's really worth getting his book or checking out the DVD before you form an opinion. As far as powder coating goes, why not just sandblast and then immediately flame-spray the whole boat with zinc? A friend did this when building his and there has been ZERO corrosion in 20 years of hard use. Another possibility is to build it out of aluminium and not paint it above the waterline.
