i have a 1990 16' smokercraft aluminum modified vee boat w/ 40 hp merc since it was new. use it mainly duck hunting in tidal marsh but also fishing and crabbing. it has been only used in salt/brackish water and has no pitting anywhere. have banged a couple rivets over the years to stop leaking a tad but other than that it is fine. with the vee i have polar crafts and other flat bottom boats follow me updown the delaware river/bay on way in/out from hunting to keep them from pounding. i wouldn't shy away from aluminum if it suits your needs imo.
I'm with benji in that the one you pictured in any chop will pound you to death.
