    Default Duroboat ?

    Anyone familiar with this boat? They are relocating their operations to Tennessee, across town from where I stays.

    I hope the welds on their boats is better than their spelling on the website, "The Worlds Finest Aluminium Fishing Boats"

    Man that is a ugly boat, and they are very proud of it also with the price.

    With 16' being their biggest boat, they're too small for me.

    Well, I hope they show up and make the boats and sell a lot of them. We have over 20% unemployment in our area. Job market is getting worse here instead of better. I ain't looking for a job. Nobody wants me.

    I do not know anything about that boat. I do hope it adds some jobs to Cane Poles neighbors. Jobs are scarce here in our area. I am retired but my sons and grandsons need to keep thier jobs.

    I have a life long career in lite metals and the seam diagram that they use is much stronger than any riveted or welded seam that i have ever seen. Come on now, any one with common sense can see that the pressure of the water against the hull will futher lock the sheet metal into the seam creating a very,very strong and water tight joint that can flex with out binding.

    Welds will in fact weaken the temperment of all sheet metal causing eventual failure due to flexing. We all have seen this occur.

    I think its a well built product. These are my favorite shots of the hull.:D
