Wondering if anyone can tell me the pitfalls of buying
an aluminum boat per se, and specifically one like the boat detailed below. I think that I understand the potential advantages.
In particular, has anyone heard of Reinke sailboats? Apparently, this company is Polish, and is much better known for its aluminum trailers than it is for its sailboats, not many of which have been ever been designed or purchased.
Also, the particular design that intrigues me is a twin "bilge" keel
design, which, apparently relies on water
to fill the twin aluminum keels. This design makes the boat "beachable" given a relatively high tide, and makes work on the hull
potentially less expensive.
Whatever downsides that anyone could note about the material, design or the company itself would be greatly appreciated.
Best to all,
