Hi Graham

I made the beams 3400mm wide, a little wider than standard i believe ..

The Ali tubes were 150mm diameter and 5mm thick wall , a bit of an overkill but would never fail 

Had a local Ali boat building firm weld them up for me ..

i  also used50mm tybe for bow and stern to hang nets off and a sort of dolphin catcher on bow tube ..
