Quicksilver 380 HD?

Why are these considered any more heavy duty than any other PVC boat? They dont look any different aside from a couple of patches applied for sitting on etc.

It's slight thicker to standard pvc which is 0.9 mm and to hypalon models too. Each fabric on its own boating needs.

Happy Boating
