Re: I wonder how well aluminum Catamrans hold up over fiberglass

The commercial work boat industry is mostly aluminum boats. There are a number of reasons aluminum is chosen over fiberglass.

All American Marine | Aluminum Catamarans | Aluminum Boats | Teknicraft Design

Kvichak Marine Industries -- Seattle, Washington

Munson Aluminum Boats - Custom welded aluminum boats, landing craft, workboats, patrol boats, fire boats, passenger boats, dive boats, research boats, fishing boats, boom boats
