to 2,369 SF.
If made of 1/4" steel, that would weigh 25,000 lbs. I have lost
track, is a dollar a pound a good estimate for steel fabrications?
If made of plywood, with 50% waste, that is 150 sheets.
A box 40' x 14' x14' has a surface area of 2,352 SF.
All in all, about equivalent amount of work as an Illinois, and in my
opinion, a much more capable boat.
