Boat plans?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
So, I've recently started working in a fabrication shop so I now have access to all sort of awesome tools. This has inspired me to try and find a use for my old Traxxas XL5 Esc, Titan 12t 540 sized motor, and 2075 servo, all waterproof. A boat seems like the obvious choice, especially since I don't have one.

I could probably just wing it, and with enough trial and error make something decent, but maybe some of those people more experienced than myself can point me to some basic blueprints. I can make changes if I can find a good baseline to start from.

I have access to, aluminum & steel cutting/bending/welding, cnc router, a mill, a lathe, drill press and band saw. Pretty much whatever I think I might need...

I'd like to make something out of light gauge aluminum ideally.
