I'm pretty much a boat slob. Hardly ever washem, I draggem if thats the easiest way to get to where I'm goin'. Some of my boats have deep gouges. I'm not a composite type of guy. I found that out over 30 years ago when plastic kayaks were still pretty new and I spent all of my time patching fiberglass. That being said, I'm not a total Neanderthal. I get it. There are many real advanages to composites.
I generally buy used plastic boats,beatem to death and sell them off for next to nothing. If it gets holes in it then it becomes one of them new fangled "self bailers".
