My Perception Sonoma is made with Airalite.
Can someone tell me more about this material? Is it as strong as the stuff most kayaks are made from?
The company’s catalog says: "sexy and stiff [ :o ] like composite kayaks and tough as plastic. But before you even climb into one of these boats, you’ll notice that glossy shine. For the scientifically curious out there, Airalite ss a co-extruded, high-impact acrylic over premium ABS. "
My main question is about drilling into it to add accessories. I called the company and they recommended against drilling larger holes (such as for a drain plug or a flush fishing rod holder). The rep was worried about cracking.
