Advantages of aluminum boats...
*Aluminum boats are immensely strong, much stronger than fiberglass, cold molded, strip planked or traditional wood hulls. Pound for pound aluminum is stronger than steel.
*Marine grade aluminum is virtually maintenance-free (except for periodically replacing the bottom paint and zinc anodes).
-Aluminum boats are so corrosion resistant that they only need antifouling paint on the bottom. All other paint is purely cosmetic.
*Aluminum does not absorb water, blister or delaminate as does fiberglass, and it doesn't rust like steel.
