Porta-Bote’s Polypropylene hull is .150thousands inches thick… twice as thick as an aluminum hull. And, Unlike the thin skin of an inflatable (every inflatable comes with a patch kit!) even the sharpest rocks would have a hard time piercing the almost indestructible Polypropylene Copolymer material.
Porta-Boat is also used as a rescue craft by many municipalities around the world
Many Portaboats are in use off the shores of Florida and the Bahamas
where skin divers use them on sharp, coral reefs.
They make “bullet proof” vests, rust proof highway signs and automobile bumpers from this “stuff! How puncture resistant can you get?
