After much research we are looking at buying an aluminium hulled RIB. Here in canada there are many to choose from. Titan, AB, Aquapro, amongst others. I have to strongly disagree with Admiral. Aluminium boats have been around for years. I'm not sure what makes him think a scratch in the paint of an aluminium hulled RIB would be any different than the corrosion that occurs on the thousands of bare aluminium boats on the ocean. And the weight savings is significant. More than 30%. I realize this is an old thread but I don't understand why anyone wouldn't get an aluminium RIB
