Well........nah, my lips are sealed.
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
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
This is what you get for that $9718 Studley minus the canopy and comes with a 30HP 2 stroke Mariner

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
GO THE POLY lol
435 ht for me lol
Bloody tin boat hank...get out,a here.
no i love em i would get rid of my xw for one lol
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).
hey ozzy and steady you blokes are very passionent about your boats its good to see.but i reckon as long as it floats and gets me out to the snags it will do me lol .if i worked for these two companys id be hireing the both of you for the sales department or spokesmen keep up the good work fellas..ro team:
Ah! What ever floats ya boat. lol
