I am looking at buying either a Saltmarsh Heron, or a Hog Island Skiff. The Saltmarsh is advertised as a Kevlar Vinyl Ester Resin layup. And the Hog Island is a Rotomolded Polyethelene I believe. How do these two compare to each other in terms of toughness and durability? Am I splitting hairs here? My heart say get the Heron, as its clean refinement, better matches my fly fishing stalking the flats persuits. Oh and it doesn’t hurt that the Herons clean lines and asthetics are way more visually apealing! On the other hand my gut says get the Hog Island because it’s tougher, more utilitarian, and can handle much more abuse then I could probably throw at it. Both are advertised as being alternatives to being used in areas once reserved for aluminum jon boats. Really? Is this even true?
