G3 Boats, of Lebanon Mo., planned this week to lay off about one-fifth of its work force because of the poor market for aluminum boats.

In all, 53 workers are affected, the Lebanon Daily Record reported.

G3 Boats is a Yamaha-owned boat company and manufactures more than 100 models of aluminum fishing boats and pontoons.

A call for comment this morning was not immediately returned.
