Let me clear something up. Alex Gravois (American Aluminum Marine) makes all boats but what he is known for is his fishing boats (bay, bass, etc.) and still makes them. Mike Gravois (formerly Gravois boats, now Metal Shark) makes commercial boats, not fishing ones. A lot of people think the Gravois are the same people, just not the case. I've seen and rode in Alex's boats and they are first class fishing boats. Like everyone whose owned them says, the attention to detail is unbelievable. I cannot speak of Gaudet boats and i've never riden or know anybody who owns one. I'm sure they're good boats as i've heard of them for a while. I have seen Casey St. Romains (Sportsman Fab in Morgan City) boats and they are very nice as well and know a few guys with them who love them. Where the extra $$$ comes into play is the attention to detail and finish work with Alex's boats. How he makes it look like a fiberglass boat is unreal....electrical is OCD neat. I'm saving up for one now and will be envious of you until then. Good luck and God Bless.
