Hornet 2001 model (435) vs brand new Clark pursiut

Post by lukenicolson » Mon Jun 04, 2012 2:24 pm

Hey fellas, my brother and I are having a hard time deciding between a Hornet 435 (2001 eclipse hull, perfect condition) with a 2004 yamaha enduro 40hp (very low hours) or a brand new clark pursuit 427 with a new 30hp merc (both motors are 2 stroke). Basically, we have a budget of $10000 and want the boat set up for river/dam fishing (mostly richmond river) with a good sounder and minnkota bow mount, which we can pretty much get away with with both boats (might run slightly over $10000). There are obviously disadvantages with the older boat, but also some advantages too, eg better deck space, stability etc. The quintrex comes with a trailer which has all the springs replaced, new axle etc....lots of work but the crossbars are pretty cancerous and would need replacing soon enough. The other boat comes with an oceanic trailer which is new, but has no where near the amount of bracing and looks pretty cheaply built? The new merc comes with the 5 year warranty too. Can't decide, but have to decide very soon as the guy selling the quintrex wants to know asap.
Would love to hear some opinions........
