I presently own a 23-8 Bayliner Trophy and want to move into a different boat, (faster, more range, better fuel economy, better seating). I see lots and lots of Hewes and other aluminum boats on the water. It seems that most of the threads I have read about the new or newer boats that you are getting are aluminum. Is aluminum the saltwater boat of choice for Alaskan waters? And why is that? I would love to hear from you, both pros and cons of aluminums and glass..
