A few were sold in SE Alaska but they didn't last. Don't know why they didn't like them. They look nice. Nice colors too but not Alaska tough.

Duroboat

We had one, carried on stern davit, and the bottom corroded through, apparently due to diesel gases combined with salt water. 5052 alloy aluminum is not the best salt water material.

Owned a 16 footer, was a great boat but was a trailer boat and not a tender. I sold it about 10 years ago to a small fish processor. He uses it daily during the season to run his waste to deep water.
