I am on my fourth boat. I previously owned 2 fiberglass and an aluminum and now back in a fiberglass. I use my boats in PWS and Seward. I personally rather have a glass boat. It seems to cut the rough water best. I cant say which would typically get better fuel economy cuz all my others had I/Os and the glass one now has OB. It is by far more economical than the V8s.
I was in a friends aluminum this year when we hit a rock and it peeled right open. I have never ripped a glass boat open on a rock before.(ive only run aground once before). If you start to take on water, what would go down faster, glass or aluminum?
Just curious. Whats your take on it..? dirt.
