    Just reading through this most of it goes over my head but I did find the Hornet 435 here for $9718

    Couldn't open up the page properly to read the fine print but it seems to compete well on price.

    that is a good price really but that is just for standard package not optioned out and is only for boat and trailer and saftey equipment

    but you still have to option it out in what you want so you will be looking at few more dollars on top of that in my opinion

    cheers

    Anyway Oz seems as if they are competing on price. Does that include a motor as well? Chances are the Poly has the advantage as people are getting them set to go for $12,000

    Can't afford a boat as yet but perhaps oneday

    Personally I do like the look of the Polycraft but can't say I know much about it. Actually as far as boats go have you seen Ozdevils? It is a ripper hehe be a long time before I can afford one of those. You get that though. It would be nice to have a boat to get amongst the Snapper, I am not complaining though as I am enjoying my fishing and don't mind learning it as I go.

    Boys, prices between the two boats are uncomparable. The two boats aren't even in the same league.

    The Polys are limited in size unfortunately but they are a great economical package.

    However, sadly, it looks like I'll be keeping my little 390 Hornbag for a little longer now as my plans for a new 445 have just fallen through.

    All the above is good humour but no good hearing that Steady but hey I'm sure the cod arent going to hang around waiting for the 445 they'll be just as happy in the 390

    Cheers

    Seriously ... HT are a great proven boat. Polycraft are also a proven boat and obviously growing in popularity. Each have their own pro's / con's. If you don't like the Poly's that's fine, but I don't think we need to turn each and every poly thread into a Poly vs HT showdown :) (unless of course a thread relates specifically to a comparison).

    :)
