I am attempting to build a 1942 Mahogony[sic] Barrelback Christ[sic] Craft 19 foot runabout. The famous JFK boat.
Something like this for shape? You could shear the 1x10 aluminum into long tapered pieces and use or lap strake construction; or flange the edges and use rivets on the inside of the angles.

Or run the strips laterally and make it like an armadillo, with exposed rivets.

Edit:Also ... Plastidip.
By the late 80’s PDI was already recognized as the industry leader in low VOC water base coatings for flexible foams... The development of these water base coatings was particularly valuable since the 1990 Clean Air Act was pending and manufactures had to choose how to deal with new emissions standards.

the MSDS for rubber dip (unthinned) says it has 4.8 to 5.2 lbs of VOC per gallon, not sure about rubber dip spray, probably closer to 6.2 due to more thinner used. Better verify with Performix though to be sure.

Or are you talking about the shop floor (traffic)?
