Zag Fab uses only 5083 5086 Alloy in all its boats .This is the highest grade of aluminum for salt water
applications. Some builders use 5052 alloy which is a fresh water grade and doesn't have the corrosion
resistance that 5083 or 5086 have. The base cost for 5052 material is one dollar a pound cheaper.
Before waste a 22' boat uses around 2500 pounds That is $2500.00 cheaper on just a 22' boat.
Looking at 5086 and 5052 side by side the 5052 is much shinier. If a boat looks really shiny It is most likely 5052. If you are in salt water make sure you know the alloy because it does make a difference.
Especially if you leave the boat in the water for long periods.
We also have a product that we apply that keeps the aluminum looking new. Reduces oxidation
and scum lines on the waterline
