There's no "tin slap" in an FX. Instead, you experience firm responsiveness that doesn't knock your fillings loose in big waves. Aluminum boats are also notorious for soaking you with spray. FX hulls have reverse chines and flared sides to kick waves and spray down and away.
There's simply no comparison when you look at an FX next to aluminum. They are polished perfection. Aluminum hulls have sharp seams that get drilled, riveted and welded - all potiential stress points for leakage.
Compare FX to aluminum boats for spaciousness and storage. You'll see that our layouts are more fishing friendly. Plus, FX infuses 4-pound flotation foam vs. the 2-pound foam that some aluminum builders use.
With our exact, computer-designed kneels and strakes, you'll enjoy superior boat control vs. aluminum - and better control equals more time in the fish "strike zone."
Demand is higher for a used FX - which are fully covered with Lifetime Limited Structural Warranties that are transferable to a second owner. That's great peace of mind and a big plus when you choose to sell and get into another new FX.
