I'm thinking about getting a drift boat, but I need some help from those with experience. My two biggest questions are: aluminum or fiberglass and 48" or 54"? As to the material it is made of - I like the idea of aluminum - seems like it would hold up to any kind of pounding I might give it, but I've also heard that fiberglass is very strong and is easier to control on the river. Any thoughts? As to the width of the boat, 48" seem more common in the used boats I'm looking at, but has anyone tried both widths and have an opinion?
