I am fairly sure I know the answer... nope... but wondering what others have learned. I think it galls ups, and gets destroyed?
I know two guys that had to walk out of a shallow water trip after an aluminum canoe bit the dust.
Then I recall a guy here using aluminum with a surface drive.. my last minute hunting partner has an aluminum canoe.. looking for pvc/plastic/...
either that or I'll buy a pack raft, to carry the extra downriver weight(hopefully)
