Default Aluminum Bay Boat

I am beginning my Research on a Custom Built Aluminum Bay Boat.

I am Thinking of Going with a 20? Center Console with a 2? Gill Bracket.

My Question is will that be Long Enough to Handle Rough Lakes and Bays?

Keep in mind that it will be Pretty Heavy, built out of all 3/16? Aluminum.

I had Casey St Romain - Sportsman Fabrication in Morgan City build one for me about 4 years ago. He'll build it anyway you want and does an excellent job. Mine is 21' with a 2' gill bracket and 7' bottom. The only thing I might change is to a 6' bottom. I't won't cut thru the rough water as well as a fiberglass but does a great job all around from marsh to offshore.
