The sales description of the aluminum boat is:

Also comes with tandem axle Road Runner 8500 Roller Bunk Trailer.
I’m told it’s unsinkable due to the foam inside, and its automatic bilge pumps have a large capacity to keep up with big waves. I’m told it’s a dry boat when underway, not splashing water to the insides. The former owner told me he could put two Quads (all terrain vehicles) on it. He says people who see it, are often offering him money to use it to do jobs for them, hauling things here and there.
Oct 10,2011 update: I’ve returned from Hudson Island, and took lots of pictures of the aluminum boat, and the old dock. I’m posting them here for now, because I need to get the dock re-built to fit the new boat better.
March 31, 2013 update. Got some pictures of the rowboat at our dock.
July 31, 2013 update. Apparently my big aluminum boat was made by E & D Manfacturing, aka, Whiskey Creek Marine. at 3684 Alberni Hwy, Qualicum Beach, BC.
February 7, 2014 update. Added an 8 hp backup outboard motor, model F8 SMH, Shown in the water, and retracted. Also, that old dock is gone. Replaced with something better and stronger.
