The worst kind of boat

An aluminum boat is not an investment-- choose wisely.

I'm a water baby. You might say I've had a silver spoon in my mouth since the day I was born and I'm grateful for it. I've been able to do and experience a myriad of things most do not.
My favorite hobby is anything on the water. Kayaking, boating, water skiing, etc. I have a vast knowledge of all things boats, as I've been sailing since I was a child and kayaking for the past decade. So, listen up when I tell you that aluminum boats suck! These are your standard fishing boats, but don't buy into them.
I understand, you're on a budget, or it's all your store sells, but you're sacrificing quality when you get an aluminum boat. The manufacturers tell you that the boat is "rust proof".
What they mean to tell you is that they've done everything in their power to protect the boat from rusting, but it is certainly not rust proof. All metal boats are subject to rusting.
They can be corrosion resistant, but not corrosion proof. The boat owner needs to be super diligent about the care of their boat and even more so when it's a metal, or aluminum boat. Again, I get it: they're light-weight, economical, and fairly indestructible, but they're also tacky looking.
I have never met an aluminum boat that I liked, ever. My first little boat was aluminum and it rusted so fast. They say that they take time to rust, but they're wrong. Don't do it!
