The electrolisis problem have been solved for years.Aparently you have not theard about all the military aluminum boats and the thousands of saltwater fishingbaots ,tour boats etc. the process hascome a longways in the last 10 years,ships are aluminum in europe itis used quite often. All the white water race boats are aluminum.Noise can be handled with either foam or sound board 3M make alot of products for it.This is NOT a splash of anything Pics will come as soon as I get my son to resize them and you will see. This boat is made not to flex and the welds will not break ,I am sure there are Aluminum fishing boat manufactures back there ,visit there shops and see the advances in aluminum construction.
Yes I have a ballest tank up front . The COG is very low as the 200 gal fuel tank is in the keel,the motors are low also. A lot will be know after it gets into the water. There are litterly hundreds of of aluminum boat manufactures on the west coast that have been building boats for 20 +years and I think I talked to at least half of them before starting this project. I don't ever leave my boat in the water more than a day or two at a dock.
I know there is a lot of concerns that only time and testing will tell after all it has to handle safe and run the speeds I want safely. I really think the time is right for this kind of boat if we can keep the price right ,there is an unbelievable amount of hand labor involved. Will keep you all posted with pics as it comes along.
