      Looks like one of the composite decking materials.

                  Wow, thanks for all the comments!



                  Sorry no response until now, I don't check every day to be honest all noticed was the first page responses.



                  The question on bending. I used a hydraulic bender. I first I bent a long sweeping curve into the whole tube by doing a small bend about every two inches and then bent the corners using a radiused die.


                  The level on the water is pretty good. Sitting boat empty it kicks up about 1 degree and sits about 4-5 inches off the water. With people in the boat it's almost dead level and of course sits a bit lower.



                  I'll scan back through and see if there's anything else I missed.


                  Thanks for looking!

                    Decking is TimberTech composite decking, the Driftwood pattern I think.

                      Yes, they are TIG welds. I was an engineer by training, now retired but picked up welding/fab as a hobby a few years back.

                        Very cool....you could make a second living at it. By the way....that is the first hydraulic bender that I've ever seen in someone's garage...pretty awesome!! I'm guessing you have the ability to do some pretty cool stuff. How did you get the design laid out? Do you have access to Solidworks or something similar?

                            Thanks. I use Sketchup for some design work but for this one I just used hand sketches and a large piece of cardboard cut to shape to get concept design approval from the boss.
