What is HDPE?
High Density Polyethylene is a thermoplastic polymer material that is extremely durable, resists impacts, cracking, and is U.V. stable. Popular in construction of cutting boards, wear plates, and high-abuse applications, thanks to advanced technology this material can now be used to create virtually indestructible boat hulls.
What are some advantages of an HDPE boat?
Because HDPE is a lighter density than water, the actual material itself will float.
HDPE will not rust, decay, or corrode, offering an ideal, zero-maintenance workboat free of electrolysis.
NO ANTIFOULING NEEDED
Marine growth cannot stick to the slick, shiny hard surface of HDPE, eliminating the need of bottom paint.
EXTREME IMPACT RESISTANCE
Sharp rocks? No problem. A Tideman hull can be beat with a sledgehammer with no effect.
