Well, this little piece of Aluminum was a bit if a challenge, it needed to be 1/8" plate so it would have the strength it needed in this critical area of the hull and it did not want to assume this shape at all. A lot of rolling and pressing and heating and hammering and it relented. This junction where the formed cutwater meets the keel on most early Feather Crafts is often a problem area but, in this case, there is no keel beyond the cutwater, so I really wanted to make sure we have a strong structure there.
