No firsthand experience with aluminum bay boats but you may also want to take a look at Vexus. They're arguably one of the best made aluminum boats on the market.

No one is biased here. Good place to ask.

I have an xpress bay 20. I have owned fiberglass bay boats, bass boats and aluminum bass boats. Have had this one for 3 years and it is by far my favorite boat I have ever owned. It is the perfect boat for me.

No comparison there.

Avid is a far better built boat.

Check out Crestliner. They build a quality boat from what I have seen.

I have a 2013 Xpress H20B which has treated me well. However, the quality of the welds and the way things fit together is really sub par on my particular boat.
