Having read the thread "Aluminum boats in Florida salt water
?" by florchidman, and not wanting steer it it off its intended discussion, and having given this some thought lately, I had just wondered what the advantages and disadvantages is of aluminium hull
vs fiberglass hull
? The one vs the other?
With "fiberglass hull" i mean to include all hulls from fiberglass
in all its forms, vinyl-ester, foam sandwhich, carbon, glass, epoxy
what ever they are built of the days VS aluminium.
I am much interested in stuff like static electricity problems? durability, making good blue water
cruiser boats, seaworthiness, safety
, hull paints or not, speeds generally, long term cost of ownership
etc and stuff I cant even think of.
If one were to buy a new modern boat of either make in the 50 -60 ft class.
What would the forums
call be? Looking forward to comments.
