How they paddle is more important. Plastic boats are OK (I have two). Just store them out of the sun, don't wrench them too hard when they are on the roof rack, and sponge out the water when you are done paddling to preserve the foam inside.

Could have walked over to our chemical engineering department and asked them (since they design manufacturing plants for the plastics industry). I just did and they concurred with all that g2d and pilotwingz have stated.
