Hi cole,

I'd certainly appreciate this information too if you find it :)

Two companies that I made note of in my preliminary search.

http://www.onesteel.com/
http://www.nolans.com.au/

Hi Folks,

Just in case you haven't found anything since your enquiry, here are two vendors that I used to build my Sea Otter.

http://www.capral.com.au - couldn't get 6063 or 6061, only 6060. Now that its cut, fit and bearing evidence of light immersion into salt water, I'm looking at either annodising or alodening it. More homework.

http://www.paskal.com.au - Based in Melbourne but with offices in other states. Bought my 672gsm, vinyl glue and hardware from there. Bought my hot welder off ebay.

Regards,
Scott

Hi all,

Tom Yost mentioned this site and your query, so thought I'd jump in and let you know what I used.

I went to Paskal also. In Melbourne they were very helpful and showed me different fabrics (PVC) I could use, I can't recall what my choice was but it's black PVC used for boat covers and outdoor banners (I think), choice of colours (so I got black :D ) and it was around $17 p/m. Around 2.4m wide though, so I should get two hulls and one deck out of a 6m length.

I have just skinned the hull of my timber Sea Cruiser and it worked well. Deck will go on this weekend. You can get cheaper stuff, especially looking for roll ends or offcuts.

For the glue, a company that makes & repairs ocean-going PVC inflatable boats recommended Bostik 1669 "sole attaching cement" (for glueing shoe soles on). Heat-activated and apparently excellent for PVC.

The Ferrari glue recommended by Paskal was luckily out of stock when I wanted it, as apparently it's $100 for a litre or less, whereas 4 litres of 1669 was $50, so should last me a few boats.

I haven't done a folder yet so no help with the aluminium frame, sorry.

Hope this helps though.

Regards,
Darren

You might be able to source your tubing through a aircraft parts supplier.

Have a look at http://www.aircraftspruce.com.au/

and more particular http://www.aircraftspruce.com.au/Metal.asp

page 68.

They have 6061T6 tubing 3/4 x 0.049 for $2.10 a foot if you go by the website
also 6061T6 5/8 x 0.049 at $3.30 per foot and 6061T6 1/2 x 0.049 at $2.20 a foot.

For a Sea Ranger that is about $375 worth of metal plus delivery as they are based in QLD.

Hope this helps.

Just notice that the prices listed in my last post are probably in dollars US.
