I'm looking for an aluminum bay boat. I'm thinking something similar to the Xpress H22. Any suggestions would be welcome. I'm just starting my search.

If you’re gonna run the bays you want tougher the better, none of the bass hulls last like a saltwater builder.
Boatright.
Scanty-White
Empire
Fifth Lake
All are much tougher than the thin hulls.

Compare the Excel bay pro to the Xpress. I think you'll like it.

One of the biggest rags I had at the saltwater boats built by freshwater centered companies like express and alumicraft, etc. was they use the same junk electrical components they use on their freshwater hulls.

Unsealed connectors and switches, plain stranded copper wire will all rot out pretty quick in salt air and no amount of washing will save it. There’s a big difference you just can’t see that will mean long term happy or not.
