Consider having one welded, and use thinner wall tubing than frame material.
Fittings and medium wall tubing are really what add weight. Negligible weight difference between wood and thinwall metal.
On the flip side, wood is warmer and could have better traction.
are you going with a floor and captain's boxes?
