The Correll (however it's spelled) we have on our boat came from my wife's father's..

... boat. It outlived 2 of their boats, life in the kitchen, life in our kitchen, and life on our boat. Yes, it can break and when it does it's a mess, but you need to drop it on something hard, like a ceramic tile floor, from a distance. Difficult to do on a boat, but easy to do in food service.

Personally, I hate washing plastic dishes. It seems like it takes longer and takes more water. They won't take as much abuse in general. It seems like a picnic plate. Does anyone have plastic plates in there homes, these days? Perhaps.

Of course, even for plastic plates I would make a provision to keep them from moving too much.
