Thanks all.

So the consensus seems to be that you could take a modern GRP boat into these waters without risking your life.

Does anybody have a list of pros and cons for metal vs GRP in general? Here's a first pass:

Steel pros
-can be repaired just about anywhere by just about anyone

GRP pros
-warmer
-doesn't rust
-looks alot cooler

Additions?
