Basically price is the only difference.. Personally I think that if you can get away with spending the $10,000+ LESS on an aluminum and not compromise performance/fishability, go for it! I can't do that here, living on Lake Erie unless I go for a deep V hull, because those bass boat style aluminums just can't take the rough water as well.
That's just my opinion anyway..

My first boat was aluminum and after owning a fiberglass boat. I could never go back to aluminum. There is times I would like to have a aluminum boat under me. For some conditions, I had encountered, but all in all fiberglass boats for me.

Same story here except it was an eighteen foot- 41" deep Crestliner with a 125 Mercury. It has every amenity that a, zero freeboard, 'bass boat' has except the upkeep.
I did the Columbia River in a 20' fiberglass 'bass boat' ONCE. It was like a potato chip in a washing machine. I kept asking..."Aren't you concerned about the water coming over the bow??" Never again, buddy.
