    nice boat, without that goofy marlin tower.

    I would own a lot more boat if moorage wasn't an issue at Whittier.

    If you had an opportunity to run a down east style of boat you would understand

    Aluminum does not require the upkeep and maintenance that my glass boats have.
    Al. is tough, my airboat will run over rocks, beaver dams, ice, etc.....wouldn't do it in a glass hull.
    My ocean boat can sit on the beach, I can powerwash it, blood does not stain it, black shoes don't leave marks, she's a good looking ride and it takes a licking and keeps on ticking!

    Also, Tedo - I lived in Maine for a few years. Cundys Harbor to be specific...it was NOT "wicked good" in my opinion.
    Lastly, I enjoy ribbing the 'ol mainah himself....
    See ya Tuesday Steve, I'll give you a shout before I head over to rig up that anchor.

    I lived in Maine as well....different coasts and applications of vessels. I concur that aluminum is tough and do a good bit of welding and fabrication out of it but the ride and sea keeping ability of the down east hull will always be better that a hard chine hull. Gel coat and rocks definetly is not compatable.
