Lightweight: Aluminium's light weight means more GO with less PUSH. Canoes are easy to paddle, carry and handle better on car tops, towing and launching
Durable: High tensile strengths and stiffness means excellent hull integrity, long lasting durability, and high strength-to-weight ratio.
Impact Resistant: Elasticity of the metal due to it's 2.5% magnesium content reduce chances of puncturing. Underwater objects frequently only dent rather than puncture the hull.
Aluminium: 5052 marine aluminium will not become brittle, delaminate, peel, water log, check, rot or swell. It assures uniform thickness of hull sections.
