RIB Dingy with aluminum bottom

You might want to look at AB dinghies. They make both aluminum bottoms and a line of "lite" fiberglass. If you are going to use the boat in saltwater, you might want to avoid aluminum - once it is scratched through the paint, it will corrode. The difference in weight between the lite fiberglass and aluminum is not that great.
