Aluminum is probably the softest in terms of forming. Alternatively, you could heat a strip of brass which would soften it. If you were doing something requiring strength I'd go with brass over aluminum every time.

I'd go with brass. Found some good stock for that too when I was building a wood strip canoe a long time ago. I imagine now you could look on line at a boat builder supply site.
