OK, the decision has been made and the order for a new boat will be done mid March. I'm going new on advice from the better half who wants to start coming out in the boat (she wants to be comfortable while reading!). The question I have and the advice I am after is preferably from someone who has already had experience with both, or compared both boats previously. The 420 Stacer Proline Angler (~ $11,000) compared to a 435 Hornet Trophy (~$15,000). Is the extra money worth it for the Quintrex and why? I'm trying to keep the price down so won't be optioning it up at all at time of purchase. Ideally I wanted a side console, but it adds too much to the cost, and I think it consumes too much deck space on these size boats. I'll stick with the 2 stroke supplied and may look at upgrading in the future if funds allow. How do both compare in terms of stability and handling. I've been in plenty of Hornet and can't fault them, I haven't however fished out of a Stacer so can't compare. I'd love to hear some opinions on the Stacer Proline Angler's specifically. Thanks for any advice or contributions you can make.
