Hi (again!) Motus,

The difference can be explained because your boat probably have quad or N-gons faces.
In 3DBrowser a quad face is count as 1 face.

Polygon Cruncher needs to triangulate such faces. This explains the difference.
If you have a one quad mesh (1 face in 3DBrowser), you'll get a 2 tris mesh in Polygon Cruncher (2 faces).
