New To Sportsman Network?

Hello
I was wondering if anyone has run into this or has ideas. I have posted a boat ad on Louisiana Sportsman and a couple hours later it disappears, so I go back into my account to rep-post or find out what is wrong, and they have disappeared from there as well. And then if i go to create a new post it says 'Ad Posting Error' and 'You do not have the proper privileges to access this page.'
I emailed the website on Saturday and haven't heard back yet.
Thanks for any and all help and ideas.

I know there area a lot of guys building basic aluminum flat bottom skiffs and I was wondering if had any tips they would like to share as to how to join the bottom piece with the sides. I plan to make one using 1/8' bottom and join it to a .100' side. In the NW they have pre-made corner extrusions that accept 1/8' sheet aluminum but I can't find the right supplier. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.

A comment titled: Re: Aluminum Boat Chine Options?? in response to a report titled: Aluminum Boat Chine Options??

Thanks. That does make sense and this boat is for personal use and not for selling or generally looking pretty.
This boat will primarily be used in streams where rocks are present but obviously the idea is not to hit rocks all the time. The boat I currently have has a .125 bottom and .100 sides with longitudinal stringers and is fairly flexy and most likely built out of 5052.
I am planning to build the same type of boat in a 20'. I was thinking of using 5052 but would be interested to hear what most of the Louisiana aluminum flat bottoms are made of.

Thanks in advance.
