Vexus increased the thickness to .025 because of all the welds breaking. They still have breaking issues just not near as many.
The reason for the life vest is I am sure is because they are both grown men
Price is around low to mid 50s
appreciate the update ---- 20+ years ago , Bass Pro tried to market an aluminum boat called " Tundra " . It had a similar shape where they tried to bend the metal to make the shape the same as a glass boat .
That Tundra only lasted a year or so --- then they discontinued it . I was asking because it seems like the Vexxus might be having similar issues .
As for your comment on gown men not wearing life jackets ---didn't realize grown men are immune to accidents .
