- Ahhhh I think 3/8 would be a LOT heavy! With a boat
about 30 feet 1/8 would be fine for mild steel or 3/16
if you are worried about it.
The older LCM 6 were only 1/8 and they were 56 feet
long and 14 feet wide. They would carry 20 or 25 tons
as I remember.

Also originally low inside; I don't know how much headroom there is in
The ultimate liveaboard would be the 35' scow schooner. It has
sharpie-type draft and plenty of room. With a litte patience, you
might be able to buy an AS-29. And there is the 39' plywood
