Aluminum plate for fishing boat
Why Is Aluminum Fishing Boat So Popular
There are many varieties of aluminum alloy fishing boats, suitable for different waters, with super high strength and safety. The hull itself is light in weight and easy to transport and carry. With relatively large space and less engine, it has obvious economic effect. Therefore, more and more people choose aluminum alloy fishing boats for fishing.
In addition, aluminum alloy fishing boat can be equipped with optional accessories according to customer requirements. The service life of the aluminum alloy boat is 10 times longer than that of the glass fiber reinforced plastic boat. Even if the hull is damaged and cannot be used, it can still be used for metal recovery.
Aluminum Plates for Fishing Boat
The aluminum plates for fishing boat mainly covers 5052, 5083, 6061 and 6063. Their choice depends on the scale and the applicable parts of the fishing boat. Generally, 5052-H32, 5052-H34, or 6061-T6 is used for small hulls that need no stretch forming.
The smaller boats using riveted construction of 5052 or 6061 alloy, and larger fishing boat using all-welded construction in 5086. The most popular alloy for hulls is 5086-H32, in thicknesses of 0.45 to 12.7 mm. 5086 aluminum plate is more expensive, but it is also much stronger than 5052.
Some fishing boats are built of 0.25-in.-thick 5052 H32 aluminum sheet and 6061-T6 shapes. Extrusions of 6061 or 6063 aluminum alloys are used for structural and decorative sections, such as keels, chines, gunwales, and spray rails.
Advantages of Marine Aluminum Plate
1. High recycling value: It can be reused repeatedly as a metal material.
2. Longer service life: The effective service life of aluminum alloy boats is 10 times that of FRP.
3. Strong impact resistance: Aluminum alloy sheets have great advantages in impact resistance and corrosion resistance.
4. The weight of the aluminum alloy hull will not increase, which is a big advantage of marine aluminum sheet, especially for boats for that are frequently used for work, official duties, fishing, etc.
5. Quick repairability: The aluminum alloy hull can quickly and easily recover after collision. The quality of the repaired hull is the same as that of the new hull.
6. Haomei aluminum plate for fishing boat has been exported to hundreds of countries such as Singapore, UK, USA, Australia, Indonesia,etc.
