  Fire inside the boat?
  Posted by: guideboatguy on Oct-25-12 5:05 PM (EST)
 

Really? Aluminum has a pretty low melting point, I believe much lower than the temperature at which iron or steel barely begins to glow, and those metals WILL glow bright red-hot if put into the coals of an established fire. I HAVE heard of using aluminum canoes as campfire reflectors!

Of course, Royalex will melt if it's a couple inches away from a 75-watt light bulb, so I see the nature of the comparison.
