Default Steel hull for large scale push boats

Has anyone ever built a pushboats hull out of thin gauge steel? I want to build one about 42 inches long and 15 inches wide. Any thoughts welcome.

Many years ago member of my club was given a steel hull for a narrowboat which he turned into a very nice canal cargo carrier.  As long as the aerial is above the steel body, no problem.

Just curious, "thin gauge steel", how thin? Thin enough that you will need to support it?

So you want to make your own steel hull? This will be interesting to watch. I say go for it.

Do you have a hull plan, or are you going to wing it?
