Frame Material

I was wondering what yall thought would be the best material to make a frame out of. I have a small paddlecat and recently decided to try and build a frame for it (partially bc of other posts here that looked like so much fun).

I realize that many differnent types of material have pros and cons. Since the paddlecats are not the most durable boats in the world ideally the material would not wear too much on the boat. Also the frame itself only needs to be strong enough to support gear and the oars because the boat says open on its own. Finally I would like the fram to be as light as possible for potential hiking usage. I have seen posts on here about frame often so I was wondering what do yall think????

There is always a reason not to...

You better search. there's more threads on this than probably any single topic. Plus, those long discussions mostly take place during the off season, now we're all boating. Well, I'm just taking "5" from work right now.
