Aluminum skiffs

Anybody have any recommendations for someone that builds an aluminum skiff. Interested in something 16x44 that I could push with a 25hp outboard. I see these boats all over the basin being used by commercial fisherman but never see them on the Pearl River by my house. Do they have any real advantage over a regular flatboat?Thanks in advance.

my buddy has almost the exact same skiff you're looking for. custom built 17x44 in pierre part with a 25 yammy on the back. he uses it for duck huntin and crawfishin mostly. pretty tough boat, gets banged up, but keeps on carryin me, him, 3 sacks, a grader and bait, oh yeah and gas and whatever he got in the front storage. all in all, i think he said like 5200 for boat, motor, and trailer.
