I like the fact that it is an aluminium boat. I also noticed it is riveted.

Yep - riveted ..... the main hull is a one piece press stamped form and then additions are riveted to it such as the side spray rails and decking.

Its sad but they are literally worth more as scrap than as designed. Its not a cheap alloy either ... its real aluminium that's been hardened. But we are now starting to see people renovate and fit decent engines - then ask silly money !

Interested in that you use the original English version of the metal name ... Aluminium and not the modified US version Aluminum ??

Cheers
