Hey all,

After a bit of advice.  I'm in the market for a smallish boat and have boiled it down to a choice between a Seaforce 430 or a Fi Glass Fireball.  Looking to go new to buy once and hang onto this for the forseeable.

Going fibreglass as it suits the all round needs at the moment.  Got a young family, kid under 4 & Wife.  So looking for something slightly more comfortable than an ally dinghy.  Used solo to fish, with more family trips, based around a short fish time and general cruising around.  However long the kid will let us fish!

Another factor is space, only have a garage to store a smaller boat in. Garage measures 5.7m long - both of these boats will fit snugly in that space (with a folding drawbar installed).

Anyone own one of these and can recommend?

Cheers

Seaforce 430 is a good little boat, that’s my choice.

I will go with the Seaforce because of their Fibreglass pontoon design.
