    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    Personally, I would stay away from the mass produced Express, Excel, Ranger, etc aluminum hulls. Look at getting a custom aluminum boat built to your specs...Uncle J Custom Boats, Sportsmanís Fabrication....both in Morgan City area and both excellent builders. Or, go with the cookie cutter ďcustomĒ aluminum builds....like a Hankos, Scullys or GatorTrax.

    Iíve owned an Uncle J, Scully and a Sportsmanís Fab. Currently have a Gaudet Custom Aluminum. Not saying Gaudet wonít build a smaller boat...but, looks like he has been more focused with some bigger boats, lately. Great hull with a lot of attention to detail.

    Just my $0.02.

    Two aluminum builders that are the fashi$$le....Clint Gaudet with Gaudet Aluminum Boats and Alex Gravois with American Aluminum Marine. If you were looking for something 23í+...and have the time to wait on one of their boats (and $$)...they are works of art when complete.

    Gravois, That's the one I was thinking about, I understand one needs very deep pockets for it?

    You're going to need deep pockets for any of those custom/semicustom hulls. Just the scantlings they build to versus production boats drives that. The weight of aluminum and material cost. Having real welders versus panel lines, angles versus bent hull plate for reinforcement, etc.
