Xtreme 1654 stick steer vs. Alweld 1652

I am looking closely at both of these boats and having a hard time deciding. The prices very close to each when you add all the options.. The Xtreme is a thicker Hull .125 vs .100.   I think I have more of a comfort level with one of the companies simply because they follow up better than the other. Maybe that's not important after I purchased the boat but I guess it could be. There's also difference in motor choices but I can live with both of those. Been with has any experience is good or bad I would love to hear from you. Especially anything negative. I would probably have to wait longer for the Xtreme but that's not a major factor as this is a long-term purchase and thanks for any input

    In general I like an aluminum hull that's thicker - but any skiff with stick steering is a deal breaker for me... There's a reason that many years ago most manufacturers quit using them.... 

    Of course I'm a saltwater guy who's running commercial in hard service...
