If you anticipate using a boat on rivers at any time I would get a welded aluminum hull not a glass hull.
Being that you are in AK I understand your desire for welded. If so, may be a good idea for OP to get an outboard jet too if running rivers. I know you AK guys like the flat bottoms and jets drives.
