  kevlar?
  Posted by: ppine on Apr-21-13 10:02 AM (EST)
 

Kevlar's main advantage is saving weight. If you portage a lot and are a flat water paddler, then there are advantages. Most kevlar boats are not stronger than fiberglass, just lighter. Abrasion resistance seems better in fiberglass boats.

The one big difference is that fiberglass boats are easier to repair. Ever try to run a grinder on all that fuzzy kevlar? Run boats in the rocks are you are likely to need some repairs down the line.
