I had a buddy that built offshore commercial fishing boats in the 1970 -80 era.
The used explosion welded strips to attach the aluminium superstructure to the steel hull.
This construction method resulted in a much lower center of gravity along with a significant increase in catch tonnage for a given size of hull.
