With a steel boat, expect to spend a good part of your time on board painting. The general rule seems to be "if it doesn't move, paint it - if it moves, paint it 'till it doesn't".. and those nail guns are noisy beasts too!!
Aluminium is not much better - it just takes longer for everything to corrode. It's wood and 'glass for me.
A bad day on a boat beats a good day in the office
